Awake


In that moment after waking
Pure innocence is found
The corrupt adult mind is like that of a child

In that moment after waking
The world seems to stand still
All that was ever wrong, is not

In that moment after waking
Peace, tranquillity, and life are present
The worries from yesterday are not yet part of today

In that moment after waking
Nothing matters except the smile on her face
The world is in your bedroom, nothing is outside

The moment after the moment after waking
Reality flexes his ugly fingers
Reality seeps into your day

Slow, cold and vengefully bitter
Painful, dark and sterile
If only we could never wake up again
If only we could hold onto but a moment
A moment after waking
