sleep

By: amanda acosta

I can hear your words
Feel them in my heart
And mine... fall upon deaf ears.

Feel the spit and hit of a fist
Oh, can I remember.
See the consequence of my behavior.

I want to be blind.
Remember days when you were gone?
(My favorite days)

Hear the steps of your feet
Wishing to fall asleep.
Opening my eyes... it's all gone
... Was I sleeping?
