Sleep

Do you know what it's like?
Never wanting to wake up.
What it's like to be laying in bed
With all of these thoughts going through your head
Death. Does it hurt?
Is it like sleeping?
****, It must be great.
The nightmare would end, right? 
Can I try it?
I never want to wake up. Please
I'm begging you, just let me sleep.
Because the nightmares I see in my dreams,
They are still more pleasant than this bullshit terror I see when I'm awake.

Hi Marchel.. powerful, well constructed write, my friend. Poetry Soup is an awesome place to display your creative, artist works. It's also an ideal place to meet and be shaped by other gifted poets. Comment on their works and they will comment on yours. Give one of the Contest a try as well. I look forward to reading more of your good writes in February. Speaking of February, Happy Valentines! Please take time to check me out, ok!
