Sleeping To Get Better

from by tamarin



When I awake but the day's not begun I've prayed for more sleep to avoid what's to come.

Sleeping to get better or at least to feel numb.

Once was a time when I had conviction, believed in some things and life was of interest.

But I was so wrong when I thought I was right, gave up the best thing I've known in my life.

Now never so much have I wanted of another to leave me alone no longer bother.

But oh how they still resound like a thunder, taunt me in the day time, haunt me in slumber.

Sometimes now thinking only hows wheres and whens. Of finding a new place to make up a new bed.

And never awake but just bury my head in a cold mess of steel or tangle of thread.
