sleep cometh to me in the night,
even though i try to fend it away.
it creeps it's way into my soul,
like a thief in the midst of day.

thoughts race through my head,
even as i try to understand the meaning.
i feel myself giving in,
slipping into obscurity.

the fight is continued,
i an not ready to surrender.
i am drawn like a magnet,
my awakeness to be conquered.

why do i fight it,
my spirit needs the rest.
is it because i am afraid,
of what i cannot see.

sleep finally overcomes me,
giving in, or so it seems.
i should have done so, long ago,
for you are in my every dream.

me.
