Awakening

Asleep

My life is a dream
I fell asleep many years ago
The world just faded into gray
I don’t remember how or when

It just slowly went out of focus
Walking became harder
I laid down and slept

I wait for one kiss
A kiss to wake me out of this non-existence
A kiss to draw my blood to my face
A kiss to make my fingers tingle and my lips tremble

Just one kiss … that’s all

A kiss

Dry, cracked lips press onto my mouth
Stale breath fills my nose
I am pushed down as my mouth is invaded
By a fat, sour tongue

How dare you come into my room uninvited
Invading my sanctuary
Waking me with your clumsy, fumbling hands

A scream dies in mythroat
I am too weak to fight back

I am awake.

to be continued …

I was asleep

I was asleep
Why didya wake me up?
I could have drifted away
I don’t want to be disturbed.

Why didya wake me up?
You shine that light in my face
I don’t want to be distburbed
I don’t want to fight any more.

You shine that light in my face
It hurts my eyes
I don’t want to fight any more
I lay down to sleep.

It hurts my eyes
In the clear light of day
I lay down to sleep
So I can’t hear them cry.

So I can’t hear them cry
I could have drifted away
In the clear light of day
I was asleep.
