…in your sleep

By: D.e.e.L

to sleep
it’s needed
yet so unwanted
a day spent creating is halted by closing eyes
fingers and mind still willing
but body is falling away from the keyboard
the chair tipping backwards
head falling onto shoulder
eyes closing calmly before being snapped back open
visions of a dark room being overcome by the bright screen
the hand closes it
and the body fades into the pitch of the night
the bed too far away
body falling numb
that laptop closed
but still on
as page ten waits to be finished in the morning
sleep
so unwanted
yet needed
