I'd just like a good night's rest;
one interrupted by past demons
and contemporary anxieties,
where my mind can be free
from a mythical existence
presumed to be much sweeter than my own.
I just want to allow myself to sink down deep
without fear of falling to the other side
and becoming trapped inside a subconscious terrain
riddled with threat after fear after endless issue.
I just want to sleep like a child with innocence intact.
