swimming for the surface

swimming for the surface
falling through the clouds
suddenly
solid ground

open eyes
cast aside
the shroud of sleep
lids creak open
lid slams shut
on box of dreams
that only leaks the feelings
not the ghost of a memory.

not a good sensation
still a little wasted
can’t understand why I would wake
only to confront the ache
I want dreams
to distract and relieve
to heal
resuscitate the soul I drowned
in bottles drained
and pills popped down
such a messy head
I lie
floating on my gentle bed
try to remember what I said
what went down
I frown
I wonder
what I’ve done

swimming for the surface
