I Have Fallen Asleep On Myself Twice

Updated on June 29, 2011

I Know I Can Stop This

Each time I try I go a little farther

My eyes begin to close but I remind myself not to go to sleep by squeezing my nose

I hold it tight but not too tight as I can't breathe with my nose blocked and my mouth shut

So silly me I remove my fingers quickly at the last minute gasping for air

When all I had to do is open my mouth

Sometimes my mind doesn't think straight and I have to go with what I have

Maybe it is a short circuit or a loose wire or a magnet in the wrong place

I am drawn to the world of sleep even though I push and push like an Alaskian sled dog trying to keep going no matter what the odds

I feel my body become lifeless as I slowly go into a slumber

Then moments later I awake with my hand on the keyboard pressing a series of letters that is like a chain letter that goes on and on and never stops

I must stay awake to see all my progress that I can make

Without dropping my head down between my shoulders then bobbing it a dozen times like I am bobbing for apples as a kid

That keeps me from doing all that I want today

With my brain still sending signals but now my eyes blurry in sight

I decide to walk slowly and climb into bed with my wife sound asleep

All my other thoughts will now have to become dreams

So I can finish what I started so early today it seems

I have tricked my mind to think I am sleeping when really I am hard at work today

I have figured out a way to get more things done in a 24 hour day

Sleep on it then when my body will rise I will have bags under my eyes

So big that you think I packed everything to go on vacation

But the dedicated never sleep

For they have persistance and perserverance and to stupid to know when they have been beat

      Aeriel_ALN One more line.One more idea in print.I feel like a young prince who has a great future before him and has to wait until his time is ready.Now it is practice and more practice to learn all I can get my hands on.Thanx for sharing my thoughts of a beautiful life and I keep trying to give more even when my pockets and stomach are empty .Because my best thoughts come from my head where it is full with incredible ideas and dreams of the best is yet to come.Life has to be pushed to the limits and this way we can appreciate all the love that we can still give.
