Claim Me

::Claim Me::

Sleep is trying to claim me

I fight to keep it off

Dreams are trying to take me

I write to stay awake

I fear the pain that awaits me

When my eyes close to the light

I fear the thought of waking

And looking at my life

An altered life I found in dreams

But the dreams turned to torment me

Wanting to sleep not to dream

Wanting to cry not to scream

Wanting someone to rescue me

  1. Im on the opposite end here. I desperately want to sleep more than an hour or two at a time. I sleep to dream, but sleep evades me. I believe both our plights are devestating and pure torture. In the end, we are both sleep deprived. I hope that you are able to vanquish the source of your nightmares and rest in a glorious dream.
