Sleep Seizures – Wednesday 17th June 2009 (Aged 34)

Sleep Seizures

i sleep
but my seizures rule me
they ruled me last night
i did not let the bed bugs bite
but i hardly slept last night

i think,
and it leaves me in undergrowth
that i can never cut back
this transition is moving on rusty rails
chin up, and never feel like it always fails

i leave,
and a life lies in pieces
it is this personality, it has its creases
so many hearts with long term leases

James Garratt – Wednesday 17th June 2009
