Ignoring the Sandman

Time is ticking by faster

And the clock hangs off the edge

But my mind doesn't move as quickly

It's blocked by a deadened hedge

You say that time is precious

And I believe it all too well

I wish I could make things more certain

But some things God will never tell

Eyes as bloodshot as roses

And ears that are prickled with thorns

I await the coming sunrise

Amidst my body's scorns

    Sounds like words spoken from an insomniac. Thoughts find me late at night and I cannot help but give into them. I've gotten better... it used to make hours to finally get to sleep... but still. But some things God will never tell... what an awesome line that is!
