Sleep This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
A shining void
Of endless depth
Beneath a heavy lid
After a rending breath

The lightning dims
To the omnipresent world
Upon a simple whim
In which all hope is curled

A break in reality
To keep one's sanity
And escape all the fallacies
Created by vanity

The muscles ease
Along with the mind
With a dream's tease
At what you may find

In a place with no time
Wishes may wander
Without reason or rhyme
While one continues to ponder

A beautiful gift from the brain
Assassinated by the coming of morning

Wow, I like the depth in this poetry, its as if its effortless when you read it, it flows well with the mind and soul.
