Midnight


In between sleep and my insanity, I wonder why I'm still up at night.
I watch as the seconds go by and feel the burden of my eyelids.
I am tempted by the softness of my bedsheets like lying between the clouds.
No. Don't be fooled.
You'll fall between the silver linings.
It's a lie.
You'll be caught in the arms of ogres.
You'll be pulled from your hinges like a rag doll, drooled on like a dog bone.
Don't fall asleep, or you'll hear the screams from those fallen into Hell.
Fall asleep and I'll drown in the tears of fabrication and fantasy.
I don't want to wake up.
I don't want to fall asleep.
Outside my window, I hear the lullaby of the nightingale.
I imagine spearing it with my sword and drinking the elixir of its life.
The delusion of its song rings through my ears.
It cries inside my stomach, "You've fallen asleep"

You shouldn't ever dread going to bed! The more you wait, the more you anticipate, the better the sleep will be.
