#poem at night: a century of sleep

August 2016

I can’t believe that this feeling of exhaustion lasts since 2011. Such a long time and no matter how much time I have off work or how long I sleep it just doesn’t go away. It is still highly accurate:

a century of sleep

a century of sleep
keeping away
my nightmares

a century of sleep
relaxing my
tortured muscles

a century of sleep
soothing my
wounded heart

a century of sleep

healing my nightmares
healing my muscles
healing my heart
healing my souls


a century of sleep
my lost souls
long for it

a century of sleep
can they find it?
