Death by Sleep


I sleep, immersed in good beliefs,

Some dreams can be very brief,

But darkness lurks in all of them,

There’s no need to pretend.

I put my heart and soul and leap,

In this darkened death by sleep.

My breathing’s shallow as my heartbeat,

Eyes shine like a lamp-lit street,

A sadness like a tiny spark,

Lights these eyes in the dark.

I close my eyes, plunge into the deep,

Into this darkened death by sleep.

Sighs die on my lips before I can say,

A fairytale, a dream of day,

I close my eyes and cry some more,

A beautiful day, my heart still soars.

The teasing dawn slowly creeps,

Away with this, dark death by sleep!
