Time passes by and my eyes are opened wide,
stuck in the sunken place as the sun begins to rise.
So tired yet I can’t seem to fall asleep.
I thought maybe I was having a lucid dream,
but I was wrong, I was caught in a loop of a never ending dream.
A dream that flows along a never ending stream that is time,
a dream that never depletes, only repeats and defeats my withered heart.
Again and again, I find myself stuck at the same part.
As the clocks tick and seconds pass by I wonder why,
I make efforts and try to escape, but the sunken place is a ferocious cave,
a place with no days, no nights, just time in it’s prime.
I lay down on what feels like concrete and close my eyes
but, It’s no surprise that with this attempt I still see.
My eyes are open again and my heart starts beating and there’s a switch in my breathing,
and here it goes again.
Scared of the end,
I feel like it’s seeping through the creeks of my non-sleeping season.
Wonder if I can beat it…
I sit up defeated,
Feeling so tired of…
seeing the same dream that haunts my brain,
the same dream that is a never ending drain,
a drain where all the contents of my existence go down.
I’m just tired and I want to sleep,
when will this eternal insomniac adventure finish?
