Poetry {53} ~ INSOMNIAC HYPNAGOGIA ZOMBIE TRANCE

My mind, the only luminosity in the darkened space

Every night the longest day

In a world inverted, where left is right

Eyes growing heavy, frustration building

Zombie trance states follow me through the day

Cycle in disruption

Burning eyes, blanked and blurred, soul destruction

How many voices have escaped you till now

The creaking of the floor, the clanking of mechanical engineering, the whispers of the night

The twisting of the sheets, bare breast in your hand, holding me tight

I am still learning how to go back and re-read chapters

Without feeling like I want to set those pages on fire

Sleep deprivation groggy and dire

Those hypnagogic states, secretly peaceful in silent gates

Not alive, not dead, I am awake in the desert of an eye.

~Hypnagogia~

Hypnagogia, also referred to as “hypnagogic hallucinations”, is the experience of the transitional state from wakefulness to sleep: the hypnagogic state of consciousness, during the onset of sleep. (The opposite transitional state from sleep into wakefulness is described as hypnopompic.) Mental phenomena that may occur during this “threshold consciousness” phase include hallucinations, lucid thought, lucid dreaming, and sleep paralysis. The latter two phenomena are themselves separate sleep conditions that are sometimes experienced during the hypnagogic state.

Do we die

When we sleep?

Destined to live

A life on repeat?

To start anew

When we wake?

Given the breath of life

With each day break?

Are you dying

From terminal disease?

Giving yourself to cosmic energies

In search of relief?

Are you dying

To dream of another world?

Found in collective unconscious

Among infinite possibilities to behold

Will you die

When you fall asleep?

Returning to the dream

Of the cosmic self beneath?

Will you be reborn

When you wake?

Curious to the path

Your soul will take?To see more of this writer’s work: http://soloontherocx.com
