Sing Me To Sleep

sunny 28 °C

==="Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I’m tired and I want to go to bed
I don’t want to wake up on my own anymore"
Asleep - The Smiths===

The novelty has vanished
Here I am
I am me
But not the same
Quite a different me in fact
Yet you look at me the same
My inner self screams
‘don’t you notice the difference?’
But no
Of course you don’t
The change is all in my head
An invisible, powerful force
With strength it has led me this far
But now what?
I look around
Trying to detect that same force within someone else
But no
They’re all different
Different colours, shapes and strengths
We converse
But no
You still don’t see it

Like another star in the sky
Though I thought it shone more brightly?
You look into the night
‘ah yes, there it is…’
Blatantly oblivious
Instead, captivated by another
I look up at the stars
Each glimmering in a unique way

The moon stands proudly amongst them
‘oh dear moon, you can see it can’t you?’
He is busy with others
He stands strong and powerfully
High in the night sky
His exterior glimmering brightest of all
Like sunshine beaming off of a mirror
I glance at my reflection

Same hair
Same eyes
Same tounge
This is what everyone else sees
But my hair has danced upon many a breeze
My eyes have witnessed such incredible things
My tounge is hungry for the spices of life
I guess no one else can see it

It is mine
As I look around
Everyone’s force is unique
Some are similar colours and shapes
But all in all, different
Maybe one day someone will see some of my colour
Or some shapes

But it is something that is mine
I am here
I am me
Yes the novelty has worn off
Until my next journey
For now, I’m just tired
I look up at the glorious moon once more
A part of me wanting to talk
A part of me is already asleep
Sing me to sleep
