Sleep is a sancuary

When I am asleep I cannot hurt anyone

I cannot hurt myself

I am left in a world

A world I control

Where I am no monster

Where everything’s okay

A world where I am happy

Being awake is a nightmare

The real world is the scary thing

There is where I am a monster

There is where I hurt people

There is where I hurt myself and I cannot stop

I cannot stop the demons inside of me

There I am powerless

I would much rather live in my bed

In the world in my head

Than in a nightmare
