Depressed Sleep

If only the sun ceased to rise;

I'd never have to wake up.

In the dark I'll stay

Surrounded by my problems that won't go away

So just leave me here and let me fade.

Let me stay in bed

Day after day;

I don't want to get up and

I don't feel like facing the world.

When I'm sleeping is the only time

I don't have to worry and go through emotions

But as soon as I awake,

Everything,

It all floods back.

I try to make it go away

By staying in bed;

I know that once I fall asleep,

My problems will once again leave me.

So let me sleep

My depressed sleep

Then freeze the hands of time,

And close the eyes of the sun.
