Sleep - Poem by Brandi Guthrie

Hideous now, I am lost again.
Drowning in a day that has yet to begin.
Wishing I lost my body like I lose my mind.
Unzip the flesh and leave it behind.
Am I working towards some remnense of peace?
No, I think I should rather the endless sleep.
Instead of the nightmares that tear me down,
In the enveloping silence, I remain unfound.
And if I could sleep for a million years,
I will have discovered a way to escape my fears.
That I`m not as strong as fate seams to believe.
That I`ve witnessed more horror than meant to concieve.
And in this my reality slips further away.
All the important moments at the edges decay.
Till I pray for the sleep to scrub me clean,
I lay neutral and dead amidst everything.
