restless am i, restless am i
deprived so
jailed by the width of my eyes
restless i am

here it is, it is here
where i lay
above the barren white sheet
restless

am i sweating? am i sweating?
but still my flesh runs cold
on the springs of my spine
am i restless?

down to rest, restless here
the twitch of my thigh
the quake of my breast
i am restless

All men and all women
proudly wear same jeans,
they've never full wallets,
but always full bins.

Thin walls. Unknown neighbours
have sex every night,
bear children who don't speak,
don't play toys, don't smile.

Rich people are happy,
we are poor and sad,
we can't make end meets,
when they're signing checks.

Stealing instead of sharing,
hatred instead of love,
taking instead of giving,
body instead of soul.

From tiresome work back home,
the news on tv,
a movie on youtube
and it's time to sleep.

It's six in the morning,
time to go to work.
Someone somewhere's shouting
What's the fucking point?!

I place my head on your chest
Let the rise and fall lul me to sleep
Feel your warm breath
Send shivers down my neck

Our legs intertwined
Your hand lost in my hair
I listen to the music
Of your heartbeat

My dreams come
To whisk me away
But I know I’m safe
Snuggled in your arms

Free verse about snuggling :)

sleep was rumpled
and the dreams
well
they were not sweet

when you wake up so you can actually rest
Pupwa 2d

I go to bed
Thoughts, none I like,
They're all in my head now
I shift, I toss, I turn
I don't want to wake up
What am I living for
Why get out of bed
I sleep

I wake up.
Another day to go through.

Before I sleep (If I can sleep)
I wash my teeth, I shower, I weep
I am pathetic
Now that I'm awake (Not that I'm awake)
I wash my teeth, I shower, I bake
I am pathetic

But while I was asleep
I didn't always weep
When I dream of people I know, they hate me
But sometimes I see images of who I can be
I've been mafia, I've been a serial killer
I've been a terrorist or a simple dealer
I've made noise and I've made hurt
I'm always terrible, but no matter
When I dream like that, I hurt myself never
So that makes me wish I could sleep forever

Precious baby,
Counting sheep.
Tell me why your eyes cant sleep?

Sweet baby,
No sheets.
This is different not so sweet.

Darling, Baby.
You can only laugh.
Memories they stay,
like Mary on stained glass.

There is a young girl
Sleeping peacefully
After a very long day
A day that drained her life force

Two hours passed
The girl still sleeps peacefully
With a little snoring
And innocent face

Five hours passed
The girl still sleeps peacefully
With a little snoring
And innocent face

Ten hours passed
The girl still sleeps peacefully
With a little snoring
And innocent face

Twenty hours passed
The girl still sleeps peacefully
With a little snoring
And innocent face

A day has passed
The girl still sleeps peacefully
But there is no snoring anymore
Because she has found the real peace.

Eluding,
Evading,
Running,
This is what sleep is to me.
I cannot say how many nights I lay awake with my thoughts.
Sleep,
The ever dodging need,
The ever wanted rest.
When Sleep does come,
Wracked with horrors and death it comes and goes,
My dreams aren't dreams.
They are horrors
Of things I shouldn't remember.
Of times that have long past.
Sleep elude me if you must.
I do not crave you,
You do not make me feel rest.
Sleep the evasion,
I shall keep.
