Don’t wake me from my sleep…
I won’t see my screen light up or hear the beep,
I’m in too deep.
I put my cares aside and drift away,
I hug my pillow and take the leap.
Switch between dimensions,
nightmares and wishful dreams,
I have no worries…
Just for this moment,
I let my eyes close and pretend I don’t know you,
nothing around me counts,
just the street lights outside my window
covering the snow,
turning it into a photograph – sepia tone.
Sleep – like a tiny death envelopes my whole,
I am one in my bed but I’m not alone.
I don’t hear the phone, leave a message after the tone,
I’ll answer when I’m alive again,
In the morning to come…
