they use to be just a black cloaked figures

Over Time

they grew faces
drown by the lake pier

i fish to sleep forever

never wash ashore

The night is here
Sleep is away.
I count the bats
Fly away.
There are days where I couldn't
Mask my emotions any longer,
And I let it all fall.
I let my wounds bleed
With no sorry within my eyes,
While the demons fall heavy
From my mind,
Laying down into the pillow
When sleep does not come,
But I'm not asking to feel sorry
For me as it does no good
For anyone,
Yet, all I'm asking within
This vulnerable state is for someone
To hear me out,
And understand me.
...at this deadly hour.

Visions of ****
And burglary
Dance around in my head
As darkness creeps over me
And I turn on all the lights
In my empty apartment
When you're not here
I toss and turn
Through the night
Popping sleeping pills
Just to catch a wink
Daydreams turn into
Night terrors
As the dog barks
At every little noise
Making me aware
Of all the scary things
Outside my window
Someone knocks at my door
But I'm not expecting company
Even with the deadbolt
I don't feel safe
In this big empty bed of mine
As I sleep alone

all night long
we stay up
I miss out on sleep
to talk to you
you kiss me sweetly
while trying
to take my pants off
all night long
we stay up
possibly
for different reasons
amber 4d
it would be easier
to not care at all
to not seek you out
for desire to dissipate
and blow in the wind
that way
I could fall right asleep
with no thought
of you
Closed my eyes to yesterday to where my sweetheart seems now so far away
from all those
yesterday's
we
shared
But all those days have all gone now giving way to memories of all our yesterday's I close my eyes and see them
all
Just won't close eyes and go to sleep at every opportunity
I have It maybe night or day for It dosen't matter
anyway
I pretend my sweetheart still sleeps with me that she laid here by my side reliving all our yesterdays whilst we
both are soundly
sleep
I see more when my eyes are closed and fast asleep all my yesterday's

How can I sleep?
When there’s a railroad
Inside my window
Near my amygdala,
When music plays
On television.
How can I sleep?
When she keeps saying
She misses me,
Yet I don’t know
What this means.
How can I sleep?
If there are blue screens
Denying
Melatonin,
In the morning it kicks in.
How can I sleep?
If the song
Has not ended
Nor will it stop
In the near future
Since I paid
For no commercial breaks.
Twilight state,
hungry to keep.
Hope it’s not too late,
to see you in my sleep.
