Sleeping to escape the waking.
I dream of the days when I will sleep the sleep of sleeps.
The time will come to sleep and I look forward to being able to sleep a wonderous sleep.
There is too much to do in the waking hours.
It invades my mind.
Escaping the sleeping and the waking hours being lost in my mind.
Wandering the dark pain filled memories to find moments of sunshine and warmth
The ghosts of my past living in the moments kept in my mind
Keeping me shackled with emotional bondage
And comforting me with the warm seas of tears
As I drown in a sea of self pity.
Waiting for the day’s end to sleep
Getting lost in the moments in my mind
Daydreaming of dreaming of sleeping the sleep of sleeps.
