Poem: I’m Just Sleeping

Plunging deep into my skin
I’m fighting a battle that I want to but can’t win
My eyes flicker and give you hope
Just as my body is shutting down, it can’t cope
The machines are beeping
You keep telling yourself that I’m just sleeping
My killer is running free
But on their conscience it’s me
In their mind I’m all that they can see

Just kiss my good night just one more time
Let’s forget this night and terrible crime
Let me give up this fight
I promise to light up the night
Be the brightest star in the sky
Just let me go, let me sleep, let me die

I promise to talk to you everyday
Even if my words you cannot hear
I promise one day we’ll be together again
I just don’t know when

What do you think?
