"Death by Sleep"

As I lay me down to sleep

Death appears beneath my feet

The air is dark

The room is cold

Get a good night’s sleep

I was always told

So in bed you stay

and you begin to pray

to your God

you ask for one more day

I will not die before I wake!

My soul is not available to take!

I think this is fair

to whom do I dare

Be positive and strong

and not utter that morbid prayer

There is nothing you can do

Death will eventually overcome you

And here you stay

It is the human way

to do nothing

for eight hours a day

What a waste of time

this crosses my mind

No love can be given

No more words can I rhyme!

Do I fight this

and stay awake forever?

Is there anything I could take

to give me the pleasure?

Don’t call it a spat!

I HATE YOU!

Don’t you know that?

You just want to play

and I don’t feel like it today

Frozen in space

life’s ultimate crime

it is here we waste

our precious time

I know they laugh

I can’t see their face

"Look at these humans

What a pathetic race!"

The need to rest

makes us our best

We can’t avoid

death’s pending void

We dream away

as our bodies lay

Down comes the sun

Another day’s spent energy done

Oh but again we are born

into a new day’s morn

The cycle begins

we awake, eat, rest, and sin

This is so crazy, this routine

We have to get up, shower, and again make our bodies clean

We get into the mood and

slide into life’s cool groove

Oh no! Wait! What happens next?

We follow the leader and hope for the best?

No way! Not me! I fail to see the pleasure

you get from that endeavor

I am alone into this world I was thrown

And here I stay trying to extend this day

Again I have lost my energy

I have no time and no reliance

Look who has come back

It’s death with his sound of silence
