Asleep in the concious body

I don't know what he's saying
But reality keeps fading
I see no sense in those speeches
Maybe because no word of his reaches
The spirit slips away
The sounds arround transform into waves by the bay
Am I dead yet ? I don't think so
It's my imagination that want's me to bow
Bow down from its power
like I am a little coward

 

I am asleep in a concious body

Untold Truth

We woke up 

You were smiling at me

You looked so unexpectedly happy

Wrapped my neck in your arms

Gave me a tight squeeze

I ask why

You won't reply

You never do

But that's the great thing

You don't have too

I already know what's held to be true

It doesn't have to be spoken

It doesn't have to be said

Yes, we might be in a little over our heads

Undoubtedly we...

- For my sleeping Savannah.

 

Sleep my lovely, and dream my lovely.

Close your eyes and see, my lovely.

 

See the fifth dimension that has formed within you,

See the universe behind your eyes.

See the truth behind the lies, see the world without disguise.

 

- Stars dance, in a floating sway.

Creating a rip through the milky way.

Black holes begin to turn and swirl,

DREAMS OF A LIFE

As a new day dawns and I open my eyes

I look upon a world in painless surprise.

A smile creeps across my hopeful face

as I lie in bed, my comfy place.

 

A tentative move; a testing stretch but

then comes a cough and my face is etched

with pain, like a stalker in darkened streets

as I grudgingly rise to my unsteady feet.

 

Reaching to grab at the windowsill and

hold...

It's five to three and my mind won't quiet
A million different thoughts congregated
In a rioted debate
I wait on the clock to stop but the
Tick tick tick is keeping me awake
Time stopping time from stopping.
It's strange, the unconscious brain
Like tapping into the universe
In sleep. 
Body in a slumped heap
I lie awake with these thoughts
Ironically keeping me up
Simultaneously worryin...

Midnight Manoeuvres

Midnight Manoeuvres
 
It's the middle on the night
And as I gently sleep
A person is moving
They silently creep
 
With feather light footsteps
In through the door
The carpet muffling 
Footsteps on the floor
 
They reach a standstill
By the side of the bed
A shadowy figure 
That moment of dread
 
Open one eye slowly
To take a quick peek
Who c...

WORLD SLEEP DAY

In 2015 this day is on the 13th of March

Sleep is a special form of the existence
It gives strength to a daytime wakefulness.
A healthy person wakes up with a feeling of freshness.


A good sleep maintains physical and mental health.
And everyone knows that it’s the main wealth.


Minimal level of brain activity and reduced reaction
Brings your body after sleep to the normal action.
