Rapid Eye Movement

Drifting between levels of consciousness

I want to stay alert

But sleep is so enticing

His warm touch causes my muscles to relax

My guard to drop

My thoughts to unfold

And stretch themselves

Until they no longer reflect reality

But instead a bloated form of the truth

Present tense becomes past

And past tense becomes distorted

Until the sand loses its order

Causing the glass to shatter


My eyes flutter

With the ferocity of a butterfly’s wing

Fighting to escape the sandman’s grip

Batting away the delusion of fantasy

It’s not real!

…but it tastes so sweet

My senses are failing

But my desires are still felt

Still real
