Sleep to Sleepless

Poem by: SilentWords

Summary

A short poem, rather depressing I guess :P But is somehow connected to growing up, a phase of life. One, that I'm sure most of us have been to or some none at all. Sorry if it's sorta bad :P Just wrote it from my head :D Feel free to comment :)

Sleep to Sleepless

 

Sleep.

It takes away my reality,

And lets me dream so deep, 

I take myself to another world

One of my own,

With adventures in my own Wonderland,

Where everything ends well,

Where my innocence is restored,

And where I can reminisce my past,

And did all the things I should've done,

Where things I wish,

Where my heart wants most, 

Becomes alive and true.

 

Sleep.

It takes away my wish to drown,

Deep beneath my sorrows,

It surfaces me,

My float upon the ocean of my tears,

The one safe haven where I can be who I am,

Whoever I want to be,

No judgements or acts,

It gives me peace and silence,

Away from all my blunders,

Away from the harshness of life.

 

Sleep.

It can be a dangerous thing,

It stole me from my reality,

And gave me wishes of darkness I want to see,

Once my float,

Now my anchor,

Drowning out to sea.

 

Sleep.

Now a dreamless place, 

A place where I can no longer go to,

A place where all my dreams have turned to mist,

Where echoes of words and thoughts and pictures are now instead.

 

Sleep.

It was a long time since I've first had that.

I wonder what it means.

Sleep.

Forever.

That was my final wish.
