I Dream Of Sleep - Poem by Nick Perritt

Tormenting you dance
Around the rim of my subconscious
Always out of reach

On the impassable barrier
Blurry visions falter
Gas escaping a clenched fist

We find frustration
In the unbending iron bars
A padded cell
Lucid imaginings

My unbearable consciousness
My stark-raving sanity
Now in question

O take me away
Or bury me deep within
No more waking nightmares
I long for oblivion

I long to dream
To dream of sleep
