sleep-is-to-life

I do not sleep tonight

For sleep brings dreams

Dreams are nightmares

Nightmares are life coming unraveled

Life is full of fear

Fear is what leads to the nightmares

Which lead me not to sleep.

Sleep is just a thing I don't really need in life

Life is just a period of chaos that could easily be shortened in time

Time is something there is never enough of in fact I believe it is in short supply

So I will not sleep or dream so maybe I just might gain more time.

I know this feeling. You've expressed it well. It's an exhausting spiral.
