I couldn’t sleep last night.


How’s your day going


I’m doing fine I guess


I didn’t sleep well last night

I kept tossing in bed

And my mind kept turning

It’s why I look so unrest


I know this might sound crazy

But I kept thinking that I was dead

And my waking life was nothing but a dream

The imagines I’ve seen were so grainy and hazy

Every time I closed my eyes

My heart pounded in fear

I would see myself dead

And hear a flat line in my left ear

Sometimes I saw myself

Without a face

I even saw my lifeless eyes stare at me

And I’ll be frozen in place

Unable to run away

Forced to watch my body as it decays

I’ll stop right there though

Since your face is telling me

You don’t want to have nightmares

Straight out of a horror show

But since you asked

You shall receive

I mean you did want me to tell you everything

Even the secrets I keep deep within me

Secrets that tricks my brain into believing that you’ll abandon me

Like everyone else have

It’s why I’m such a reclusive hermit

Who has trust issues and always look so sad

~a sleepy ghost~
