Sleepy thoughts in a watery grave

I am tossing and turning

Thinking of sailing

The sea is rocking me

The waves are singing me a lullaby

There is no land in sight

Water as dark as my thoughts

Breath leaves a balloon

is my chest and

it hurts to lay down

with this knife in my back

Something in the distance 

Rocks are treacherous

but they mean land

I'm not sure if that means 

I get to sleep

"It is a terrible thing to be so open. It is as if my heart put on a face and walked into the world" -- Sylvia Plath.

I like this one a lot

It's dark.  How I interpreted it, its like a struggle similar to that of a fish out of the water.  Hopelessly seeking refuge and traveling the unknown. Keep it up!

Almost Sleep

I stand in awe between life in death - waking and sleeping. This is the way I feel when I awaken from a dream - marvelous composition - a nocturnal vigil  indeed ~Star~
