Sleeplessly Embracing

Sleeplessly I see the ash falling
I see the angels weeping
The sky is cracking
I’m so tired

I’ve never truly slept
The melancholy has consumed me
The vines of purgatory have entangled me
Yet sleep still eludes me

The clock has stopped
The sun never comes
I lie underneath the sky
Waiting for the sandman

My hand touches cold steel
The gun is cocked and ready to shoot
My life is gone
But I still do not sleep
