The Sleepwalker

You are a silent sleepwalker, a cocktail of insomnious dreams.

You are a silent sleepwalker, a cocktail of insomnious dreams. How does it feel to escape reality?

These dreams –

These dreams – Are they a fever of gasping ghosts that concoct

These dreams – Are they a fever of gasping ghosts that concoct into a cacophony fermented by intoxicated heartbeats?

Yes, they are your heartbeats.

Are they knotted up, splotched up in wine-stained shades,

Are they knotted up, splotched up in wine-stained shades, haunted in hypnotic hiccups that buzz like banshees

Are they knotted up, splotched up in wine-stained shades, haunted in hypnotic hiccups that buzz like banshees in faraway fairylands?

Please come back down.

Dear –

Dear – What good is this pleasure party plastered in pity,

Dear – What good is this pleasure party plastered in pity, numbed in nostalgia from that journeyed jungle of festered fears?

Nothing about it is good.

When you sip on this madness, doesn’t it taste bitter?

If you come crashing down,

If you come crashing down, I fear the doldrums will spill into your delusions.

(Aside) Hey, Commaful! I apologize that I haven't really been writing too much, lately, minus a collaboration earlier in the week. I hope that this piece isn't too dark, right off the bat!

The idea for this piece came spontaneously, and today probably wasn't the best day to write as I have been feeling tired all day long. I wasn't satisfied with my initial draft, but after a few revisions, I feel fairly happy with where this piece is at. :)

This piece isn't really about sleepwalking in a literal sense, by the way. I am curious to hear some of your thoughts and interpretations about this piece, but there is definitely a slight anti-escapist sentiment in it.

I hope that many of you found something to enjoy here. Thank you all for reading, and take care, Commaful! <3 Keep on writing!
