Sleep is fleeting,
It let’s you flee from the dark,
But you need the dark to sleep,
Sleep is the one thing we all need,
But most don’t get enough.
We shroud ourselves in lies,
Hiding from the dark,
The light is there to protect us,
But it also illuminates our fears.
I hover in the shadows,
Fending off the dark,
Waiting for sleep to come,
But sleep is fleeting.
