Lidless

Am I the only one

Terrified

Who doesn’t sleep

Tortured by mortality

Or, am I just conceited?


I wish I could sleep now

But whenever I stop the distractions

I recognize the turbulent beauty

And wish to hold on


I cry out

Upon the precipice of slumber

“Kill this fear!”

But that isn’t logical

So here I write nothing

With swollen eyes
