AM I HERE?

TALK IS SO CHEAP

i  sleep so tired
My head so worn
And talk so cheap
Like when I sleep

They come for me
All inside my head
And when i pray:

They say, “Talk so Cheap!”
i don’t think i’ll survive
Cause every single night;

They come for me —
Those ones within my brain.

Dream police
Come with handcuffs
— You know when we talk
And those false rumors
Keep me awake every single
Night driving me insane!

And those men in black
Live all within my head
— Well i cannot tell
If i fell to sleep Tonight!
Every single night they
Drive me so insane and all
Within my BRAIN:

I try to dream — but every time
They persecute me all without
A judge or jury and now i stay
Awaken with one eye closed
To keep away the zombies,
Vampires, wolves, and
Monsters of this zone!

It’s the dream police —
ICE, and governmental
Whores; the people of
Every shade.

Like, talk so cheap.

ALL I WANT IS TO SLEEP DELIRIUM

i swallow eight while time
tells me, “ha ha”
i’m so miserable with my pillow
and my heart thumps like an
elephant released into the wild
after nine years oh my my,
the white coat says go! so here
i go without a net — my feet
bleed so my eyes bulge
and my brain screams
‘i’m lost in delirium’
a clock says, “nine”
my tongue so dry dancing
upon dead minds — my heart; oh!
dancing everywhere explodes!
maiming souls and blinds
whatever i was before today
i’m so numb /600 lb gorilla
in my room\ so here we go
sleeping within delirium
and i know i’m on my own
so here we go again
and so i try till something
breaks within my soul
‘ten’ strikes the clock
and i’m done — very well
and now i sleep to begin again
in the morning i’m so dead

IF I SLEEP AND AWAKEN WITHIN A DREAM

IF I SLEEP AND AWAKEN WITHIN A DREAM

i believe uh huh, believe
in what we are missing
witness the ghosts leaving
a spread of oh what we are
space: and i believe i dream
and dream of father’s in deserts
and mother’s in oceans
i dream so far i hooked Leviathan
in shadows of all my shame
i dream i had a secret promise
only (what torture says) is me:
i dream so logical within all
my dreams and i dream away
dream i’m awake when i sleep
and who knows : if i measure
life by sleep then i’ve been
the long death –> sleep!
and if i sleep and awaken in
a dream i should dream love

SWEET PLUSH PURR

sweet plush purr
like a squeeze-
box when sleeping!
little kitty making
squeezing songs!
dreaming sleeping
while the day
is so young!

TWILIGHT KINGDOM

WE all sleep as children
a solemn belief of night
the majesty of our life
a twilight kingdom
and I love you my dreamer
who comfort my empty life

SLEEP

SLEEP has caught me
more than once
awakening while
living life

NO WONDER

WHEN in sleep and I dream
sometimes little things
from the land-of-here
fall through the sleep
into over-there
Such no wonder then
that when I dream
the same reversal
happens here —
explains the reason
for the monster
in my closet…

A DREAM UNTOLD

I FELL to sleep
with a vision
of you
and embraced
the face
of love like you
Upon the wake
I stared in need
and saw I held
a dream untold
