I often ideate about endless sleep,
when the lights are dim, and my thoughts are deep.
I sought it once, but I screwed it up
(if I wait forty years, I’ll get what I want).
My new long term goal: stay awake for my son,
keep him wide-eyed at the wheel, to avoid a collision.
To overcome the challenges that his life does present,
to learn some much needed life experience.
Then I can have my endless, dreamless, painless sleep
from which I can forget about all of this.
My first book of poetry, The All or the Nothing, is available now as an e-book from most online distributors. To find out more, click here.
