I Sleep

by Sury Cazel

As it digs down into my flesh,
all that I am rushes out
Breathing the impure yet precious oxygen
I feel it trickle down my naked arm
Leaves its traces behind
Bright red with shades of darkness
Makes its way out

The pain is present
Horrible yet pleasant to feel
A rush of adrenaline flowing
through my veins

Emerging from the darkness of
my soul to an outside world
I watch as it passes through broken flesh
A companion to my life

From the very core of my being
I have sudden freedom
Lightness coming from this very body
Contains a marvelous substance

And by the power of this beautiful
sharp miracle
I sleep.
