Pillow, comfort me;
I lay restless with my stifled apathy

Blanket, keep me warm from the bitter cold;
A draft disperses into my heart

Stuffed bear, stay with me;
You are the one who I can hold onto

Mother, shut the door behind you;
I desiderate the peace that you suppress

Brother, find happy dreams;
You are crawling away from us

Smelly dog, stop being so smelly;
You shed balls of fur as you lay sprawled on the floor

Grandmother, bestow your hindrances aside;
Remember the last time you felt genuine exuberance

Friends, grant me placidity;
Apprehend, issue after issue, I haven't had time for my own

Love, don't let me fall;
You rush towards me, I am unsure of this revolution

Child, slow down your pace;
This unsteady heartbeat is worrisome; you let her pain become your demons

Musician, quiet down;
The sounds will never leave you

Moon, flaunt your light;
Unclouded, we depend on your presence to bear affliction

Girl, come out from behind that wall;
Inclination will defeat you; Excessive attempts to hide are futile

I am weary
Help me surpass this time of intellectual chaos
Sleep, render to me
