a night alone

cool pillow sheet

cool pillow sheet against my warm cheek

cool pillow sheet against my warm cheek robbed of any possible sleep.

rest is for the weak?

rest is for the weak? my tears don't agree,

rest is for the weak? my tears don't agree, memories play out on repeat.

muscles relax in defeat,

muscles relax in defeat, heart skips a beat

muscles relax in defeat, heart skips a beat as the blanket of deceit seeps

muscles relax in defeat, heart skips a beat as the blanket of deceit seeps through my cracked reality.

accept my own mortality,

accept my own mortality, death's life's only guarantee,

accept my own mortality, death's life's only guarantee, watch my ceiling fan spin,

accept my own mortality, death's life's only guarantee, watch my ceiling fan spin, questioning my sanity.

hair tangled from my irrationality

hair tangled from my irrationality trying to understand my apathy

hair tangled from my irrationality trying to understand my apathy as the blades click in quiet agony.

the sharp edges cause me anxiety,

the sharp edges cause me anxiety, of a certain impending casualty,

the sharp edges cause me anxiety, of a certain impending casualty, the ticking of my clock ignites

the sharp edges cause me anxiety, of a certain impending casualty, the ticking of my clock ignites the bomb that's inside of me.

but it all slows,

but it all slows, my ears ringing incessantly

but it all slows, my ears ringing incessantly from the grim brutality

but it all slows, my ears ringing incessantly from the grim brutality of my reticence.

alone in my minds residence,

alone in my minds residence, a victim of my intelligence,

alone in my minds residence, a victim of my intelligence, my mind broke my soul tonight

alone in my minds residence, a victim of my intelligence, my mind broke my soul tonight and left behind zero evidence.

a breath of fiery restlessness

a breath of fiery restlessness stirs the burned gentleness

a breath of fiery restlessness stirs the burned gentleness of my venomous human touch.

it withers that which i love,

it withers that which i love, this burden is far to much,

it withers that which i love, this burden is far to much, the moon’s eyes beam bright

it withers that which i love, this burden is far to much, the moon’s eyes beam bright and always were one to judge.

a warm breezes echoes the moon's beam

a warm breezes echoes the moon's beam curtains trailing like a silk stream

a warm breezes echoes the moon's beam curtains trailing like a silk stream the windowless hole upon

a warm breezes echoes the moon's beam curtains trailing like a silk stream the windowless hole upon my soul becoming normal.

the scene painted is a picture not awful,

the scene painted is a picture not awful, but real,

the scene painted is a picture not awful, but real, after all we're only mortal,

the scene painted is a picture not awful, but real, after all we're only mortal, we feel,

the scene painted is a picture not awful, but real, after all we're only mortal, we feel, my tears ink drops causing truths to reveal.

twisted sheets

twisted sheets capture my fleeing

twisted sheets capture my fleeing authenticity,

twisted sheets capture my fleeing authenticity, warming the close proximity.

the warmth contrasts the ice i am used to,

the warmth contrasts the ice i am used to, the cold shoulder, they see right on through,

but nights in a sheeted cocoon with moon can be wonderful, who knew.
