Subconscious Numbing - Poem by Sean Godley

I know I am not living and awake,
Though life should wake me from this heaving sleep,
And I am not dreaming, yet to wake.

To watch the thriving life as day does break,
And mark the dragging of my clanking creep,
I know I am not living and awake.

I do not ebb to sleep as night does take
The lonesome tired souls, and make one heap,
And I am not dreaming, yet to wake.

As I see the love the living make,
And stumble where they make an easy leap,
I know I am not living and awake.

I watch the lively souls, but can’t partake,
Although my dry lips long their souls to seep,
And I am not dreaming, yet to wake.

One thing is clear – nature’s tired mistake.
This vantage makes life’s riches dull and cheap:
I know I am not living and awake,
And I am not dreaming, yet to wake.
