A somnambulist is a person who walks about in his or her sleep; a sleepwalker.
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, 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.
Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream..

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
