When You Fall Asleep

Poetry By: Renja Shades

When you're sad,thinking of a person who hurt you,just remember that maybe somebody else is begging for your attention.

When you fall asleep,

You dream of the one who could make you happy.

No matter how much pain that relationship gave you,

Thinking of it gives you some joy.

When you're lost in your dreams

About what could have happened,

Somewhere, somebody else,

Is not sleeping, and cry.

They pray, while you're sleeping,

To open up your eyes,

To open up them wide,

And see the truth before you.

When you feel hurt, there's somebody else

Who are willing to heal you.

But you just ignore them,

You're deep inside that dream,

So deep that I'm afraid

That you'll never wake up!

If it suits you like this,

Keep up dreaming and suffering.

After all, it's in our nature;

Humans are fond of pain.

Whatever you do

You should never complain,

It was a choice you took your own,

To pick up coal instead of gold.
