We usually like the feeling of sleep.
Something so calming in heavenly deep.
It's like swimming in open water bare.
Not thinking about what awaits to scare
Us out of our bones and out of our flesh
And out of our mind just waiting to press
Us between two slices of freshly made bread
The layers of fabric that you call a bed
I’m aware of these monsters so each night I take
It upon myself to instead stay awake.
