Narcoleptic

I close my eyes for a moment too long

I’ve fallen asleep again…

It’s easier at this juncture

I assert candid snapshots

Dismiss the paparazzi in my

Head lest they jolt me lucid

Cameras flash –

My unique version of night terrors

I desperately wish to

Reopen each badly sewn stitch

Drain the poison of naive misconceptions,

Maybe I would mend

Instead, I brace against the

Burden of my wounds-

All that remains once my cocoon

Refuses to swaddle me any longer.
