"Crazy people don't sit around wondering if they're nuts." -Jake Gyllenhaal


Hush, go to sleep.
You’re in your bed now.
The pillow is your guard,
The blankets are your shields,
So cuddle up.
Close your precious eyes,
And sigh in contentment.
Hush, breathe out the world.
Let the pain sink down with the sun.
Sleep—
Sleep away the day.


The author's comments:
I just realized how right when you get into bed, you have to think about anything. You don't have to think about the next day, or the previous hour, all you have to focus on is going to sleep. It's like sleep is a remedy for pain.
