"To Sleep..."

to sleep until all turmoil's gone... past night - past day - past endless dawn - until even God can't recall why He made me... the least of all. to sleep until there's nothingness... no pain - no grief - no sore regrets - which cause such anguish to the soul. this i would choose... ultimate goal. but then a voice speaks in the dark... "You can't!" - "You won't!" - "You have the spark!" and breaks away the deadly black which steals my soul... to bring me back. Once reason, lost, returns I see... the past - the now - the future me - I am amazed how close I came to losing all... with self to blame. For I asked God to let me "feel"... the pain - the grief - the senses reel - that others have, while here below, to better love... and truly "know"!
