Sleeping Awake - Poem by Lance Carthen

Poignant decay.
Mystified journey.
So sick as you sleep.
Unheard religion.
Hells caught in the crossroads.
The beggars breath stinks.
Throw down the mirror.
Pupils dialating.
Golden locks to drops of blood.
Broken gate open.
Self esteem stolen.
Trapped between lust and love.
