Sleepless Dreams

Updated: Jul 18, 2019



Hurt by failure

Betrayed by hope

Discouraged by disappointment

Paralyzed by insecurity

I stand bemused

My dreams, staring back

Wondering when

Begging for a home


Each minute, slipping away

Like the wind, I cannot catch it

Like space, I cannot contain it

Like breath, I cannot buy it





I stand bemused

My dreams, staring back

Wondering when

Begging for a home


Lack has become my alibi

Giving up, my refuge

Loneliness, my only comfort

Yet, the eyes of my soul refuse to close

Now

I lay powerless

Before the torments

Of my sleepless dreams.
