Within Me

A battle to get up, raise myself out of bed

All I want to do, is deeply slumber in the warm blankets that cover me

As if someone was all around me

Conveniently keeping me from what lay outside this room of comfort

Demands, opinions, contradictions

Here there is only sweet, warm sleep and the dreams that carry me into the solitary seclusion

That peace exists within this body that lay at rest

Even though living is what makes the difference

What we leave behind

Not what is hidden in our minds.
