I'm so tired I can't keep my eyes--open

I’m so tired I can’t keep my eyes—open

I’m so tired I can’t keep my eyes—open
But the light—goes—out
 and I’m—Wide—awake—
but the Dream’s the same
And  I don’t know what it’s all about.

Dancer’s spin—and grin as they twirl
Around the darkened—room
And I’m—Still —awake—
Though it seems a dream—I take
A moment to—peer—through the gloom.

The Dancers change—to demons—
Fangs bared—and eyes—of red
Appear—but I’m wide—awake—
And all I can think—is there’s some—mistake
As I fill—with the sense—of dark dread.

The Demon’s morph—they fill my mind—
All comfort changes to—fear—
Why am I wide—awake—
I can no longer wait—
As the Demons continue to appear.

Forward they leap—in a macabre dance—
Their claws—digging into my skull—
Keeping me wide—awake—
Calm dreams I forsake—
Into hell—I am consciously pulled.

Dragging myself—through the fire and stone,
I must escape the voice in my head—
Screaming at me to wake—
And I fear I will break—
As all dignity—and joy—it does shred.

Holding on with all my Might—
To my sanity I cling
Trying not to stay—awake—
Though I fear I may have to fake—
A happiness that only sleep—will bring.

For hours—I struggle—with the demons
Forcing them to stay at bay
So I’m no longer awake
When the world starts to quake
And before I can blink—it will be day—
