Sleep by Lexi Morgan

Posted: March 19, 2015 by Lexi in LexiM2015

I lay down my head,
Close my eyes,
And beckon,

“Sleep.”

There is a gentle dragging
As gravity urges me down
To the center of the earth.

The ground moves down with me,
An elevator to the unimaginable depths
Of this mirage of a planet.

I will know what labcoats know
And I will prove them wrong.

Only those in Hell can know
What Hell is and what it’s like.
I will know the secrets of the earth.

Drift slowly, child,
Feel the layers of reality peel away
As you descend further through yourself.

Shed your skin, slithering soul loose to explore.
Rest your robot bones, ethereal heart.
The time is now.

Time to wake up, child,
And see the truth of your soul.
Dream, that you may see the world

Without limit.

    I love the idea of shedding your layers so you can descend into sleep. Such truth, but so elusive sometimes.
