I am only but awakening

I am only but awakening My tired eyes are failing to open I try so hard but they are sealed shut The nightmares of the ocean keep me choking on my own sleep-filled thoughts My mind is my worst enemy I am a prisoner that cannot escape The drowsiness of my dreams, of reality It seems to only haunt me Reality grabs ahold of me and scrapes at me until it consumes every piece of my sanity No bandages seem to cover the scars And no amount of glue can fix me Awakening up from this nightmare seems far from reach, all I can try to do is breathe.
