I Fell Asleep – Written Thursday 15th December 2005 (Aged 30)

I Fell Asleep

i fell asleep and i began to dream
i began to dream of my past
and where i had been
nightmares of cloak and dagger
the sound of night as dustbins clatter
i fell asleep and slowly drifted down a tunnel
pausing only,
to hear the sound of my own heartbeat
i felt new-born, the patter of tiny feet
i fell asleep and descended down the stairs
eyes peeping out of the walls at me
i felt almost completely bare
i decided to knock on god’s front door
and i asked why she was not there
all in this in world which i only dreamed of
all because i nodded off
