Sleep Is only ever pleasant In my eyes, closed when the daylight shines. I do not wish to see Smiles that pass through the roads, For I am faded. I am the mind that has battled the heart, The fear that has battled fate, I have locked the expression that cannot be Expressed, beneath the moon that will not leave. My tears do not flow. They merely sit On the edge of eyelids, closed. Like cliffs that halted the waterfall From making the lake, Or the greater stream. I think to myself How my time could be spent In the arms of the one I won. She sails Freely from me, Out in some chaotic space Where love is blocked by the open air.
