Ignoring the Sandman

Written by: Juli- Michelle

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
