The forbidden yawn
Slithering like a river quick and regal
A calm creeps up upon you now a calm that knows no equal
Your jaws they part your teeth so cruel
They say their last farewells
And from the depth of nothingness
the voice that there so dwells
It groans and mutters, screams, demands
From down there in the deep
Enough with all the pleasantries
You fool we need to sleep!
You don't give in so easlily
You do put up a fight
Those forces sent by up above they don't give into flight
It is too late the cozy warmth of silent hypnos breath
It overwhelms your body fast
8 hours now of death
You drift away reaching for the everchanging lights
Hoping that somehow you would find aid in this lonliest of nights
Noone is coming and it might just be a good thing it is so
For the warm embrace of sleep is a way we all must sometimes go
