For hours I sleep, waiting for something intangible.
Glass shades the world in vivid variants of color—
There are no definites in this reality.
For hours I sleep, waiting for something intangible,
And when I find it, it passes through my mundane hands
Like water.
 
Sleep, like rain, falls gently down upon my prostrate body,
Covering it with soft, silken dreams that I cannot grasp now
Or ever.
