what it’s like to fall asleep

i took a rest
as i felt of losing the desire
the eagerness
to spill or to expose
whatever fills the void
whatever cements the shattered spots
whatever breaks the peace
whatever hushes the blaring sounds

all in my head—
a never-ending cycle
a painful encounter
that will never go away

so i took a rest
as i felt of losing the fire
to overcome the freezing
and the numbing point

have i ever exposed it
or just absorbed all of it?

that’s why i took a rest—
and attempted to arrest
the culprit that has been
destroying the solitude:
my mind?

it’s a never-ending cycle.
