All I Want

By , Oak Bluffs, MA
All I want
Is to Sleep
A sweet
Dreamless sleep
Where my
Memories cannot find me
All I want
Is to Sleep
To hide myself from
This harsh and
Ignorant world
All I want
Is to Sleep
To close my eyes
And leave
This awful place
For a while
All I want
Is to Sleep
I need to sleep
It's been so long
Since I've left and
Taken a small
Vacation from
Everyone
That will
Never understand
Just how sad I really am
All I want
Is to Sleep
Please let me rest
I can't survive until
I'm dead to
Sleep
For I am far too
Tired
All I want
Is to Sleep
My friends worry
But I can't explain
Their lives are
Happy
Their lives are sane
I look around
And see darkness
All I want
Is to Sleep
I lay my head down
I cannot sleep
I need someone to
Hold
Me together
I fear that these
Dreams
These broken memories
Will eat my soul
Away
All I want
Is to Sleep
Please let me sleep
I see those nights
As if they'd been
Yesterday
But you have been
Gone
For nearly six years
And you can't come
Back
All I want
Is to Sleep
You kept me
Happy
And you kept me
Safe
You were my
Brother
And I love you
Still
More than
Anything or
Anyone
In this world
All I want
Is to Sleep
I don't want to
See that night
Again
I miss you
But I need to
Let go
All I want is to
Sleep
You are forever
In my heart
Goodbye
Sleep well my
Brother
Sleep in the
Wind
And the waves
Of the ocean
Be my guiding force
Through life
Be the wind in my
Sails
The sunlight
To my new plant
Of hope
And then
Maybe
I will finally
Be able to
Sleep.
