Dreaming Of Sleep - Poem by Jared Bradford

This dream is killing me
I'm not even asleep
This nightmare is drowning me
In a pool, endlessly deep

During the sun
I can't think straight
Under the moon
I only want a break

I can't sleep now
Clocks hittin' 2: 22
Of all the things to do
I just can't sleep at 2: 22

Wish I could stop time
Fast forward, Reverse
I would change it all
To get rid of this curse

But times not stopping
It's now 2: 23
Why can't I just dream?
Why can't I be free?

My eyes, like my mind, Are wide open
It's now 2: 24
Someone tries to enter,
No, my cat scratching on the door

These lines take no time
Now the clock strikes 2: 25
I start to feel a chill
As tough I may die

A thought pops in my head
While I lay in my bed
I could sleep forever
If I were only dead

I read what I just wrote
Skim over one more time
I come to my senses
That was a bad rhyme

Although sleep haunts me
My dreams fool with my head
I would rather write forever
Than be laying dead.
