my bed feels like an ocean

im swimming alone and drowning in in nonexistent sleep

ZZZ becomes synonymous with SOS, but no one is answering my plea

i am drowning and hurting and my lungs are numbing to the sounds of others that snore

dear god, save me from thy pain, as it haunts me to know that if you exist,

you leave me with the inability to do what we all crave

and that is to sleep with our eyes closed;

because with them open, we are reminded of the things that tear us apart

if i were a mermaid, i’d stay underwater forever and then some, because at least i could be swimming

in the ocean

and sleeping with the sharks

that already parade my mind

during sleepless nights
