She sleeps soundlessly.
Surrounded by fluttering pages,
exhausted from living
countless lives
as she sat alone
unmoving.

do you think it's a coincidence
that falling asleep
and falling in love
both start with falling
and end with you?

a short one today.

I wish I knew how to
Freeze myself
In a cryochamber
So I could wake up
In fifty years or so
When no one will
Remember me
Or what I've done

I have weird thoughts.

Sleep
with no tomorrow
Sleep
with no desires
Sleep
your only passion
Sleep
with your last breathe
Sleep
as the darkness hums
your name

Things are happening
But you're just sleeping.

War is breaking out
People are starving
Children are dying
But you're just sleeping

Guns are being shot
Bombs are going off
Lives are being lost
And you're still sleeping.

I still choose to stay awake at night
but not drown myself in misery.

I continue on being a night owl,
having little to no sleep at all.

I still have a reason
to keep myself up in the wee hours.
Because I'm in a conversation
with someone
who acknowledge my presence.

Someone who makes
the bags under my eyes
worth having.

The sleeping eye
sees nothing aside
from the sleepers dream.
It may be shut
for fear to wake
only to face
an assembled fate.
May we never know
as sleeping eyes cannot speak
but rest assured,
these sleeping eyes do very well weep.

Why is it so hard to sleep?
I lie down in my bed
Eyes shut tight
Sleepiness is in my head
Yet I can never sleep
