I Overslept In Life

I drank the drank

Drugged the drug

Took the trips into waking dreamlands

Waking up in squalor and pain

Years from when I started

I realized…

I over slept in life

I lost years

Friends

Family

LIFE

As I sleep walked through life

For years

Waking up

Spitting bloody sand from the desert I woke up to inside

And swore I’d never sleep that way again

Screaming

Crying 

Crawling 

a sleep walker.

Free of it all

I embraced sleep

I embraced my waking hours

Savoring every normal desire

Every normal night dream

Free of bloody 

Screams

And cries

In the daylight 

And years that passed by with zombie eyes

And demonic desires.
