Fall Asleep From this Nightmare|
I can't bear to stay awake tonight,
But I am too afraid to fall asleep.
What nightmare will plague me tonight,
As my eyes start to close
And as I lose control of my thoughts.
Where will they take me, in this night
As I try to escape the happenings of my day,
But unsure where I feel like falling tonight.
This reality as a whole is just a nothingness,
A place that I'm just too tired to be in
But even the want for slumber cannot fool me
Into thinking that beneath the sheets is another escape.
Not tonight I will not fall away
But this day is starting to drift away,
Another 24 hours of things I cant heal
When nothing occupies me anymore,
And nothing holds my attention.
Just a wait through the day so I can finally sleep,
But all through the night I beg not to dream
So I cant face everything I try to run from
Even though it all comes back in the end.
I long for a day where I don't feel sick,
And only look forward to darkness
While trying to pass by my crumbling abyss
Of haunting feelings that upturn my thoughts.
