simpleton, raise your voice
raise it to the sky and down
it's your choice

put your head
softly
on the pillow
relax your muscles
sooth
your nightmares
and sleep

if only sleep came so easily

wide eyes staring into ink and shadow
not scared, just filled
with thoughts
and thoughts
you're cold, you're warm
you're filled, you're hollow
and you wish you could
take a leap of faith
and fall into the touch of Morpheus

but when the time comes
you won't have the dignity
of remembering it

simpleton, raise your voice
it's in your head
make your choice
