Sleeping is my world, my excuse, my safe place,

Sleeping is better than any opiate.
I could fall asleep at any moment desirable.
I use that to my advantage.
I can get away from anything.
hurt, love, loneliness, people,
situations, and most importantly,

Sleeping, can it be an addiction?
A two hour nap every day is efficacious.
It's more like a hobby, it doesn't mean i'm depressed.
It just means i like to be

serious thoughts and endeavors

about the room, the house, the world around me.
When i wake up from my nap, whenever desired,
i feel extremely rejuvenated. So fresh.
