Sleeping


sun, sun, go away
let me sleep, all day.
she's in my mind
not hard to find
she's in my heart
dreams bring her to me when we're apart
just let me sleep
sinking into a subconscious so deep
imagination within the brain
helps me escape from the pain
i want to sleep tonight
don't wake me up with your light
sun, sun, go away
let me sleep, all damn day.
i drift under the warmth so i feel protected
signs of tears have been detected
i'm missing you already
i pretend like i'm holding you, baby
i'm sleeping, dreaming of you
waiting to see you again, my heart is blue
tell the morning not to come, i don't want to be awoken
when i'm not with you, i am broken
sun, sun, go away
let me sleep in for today.

    Very romantic, very lovely writing. It doesn't feel like we're dreaming, when we're dreaming. Nice concept. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
