Awake, my love

“I am the one I love.
The one I love is me.”

– Al Hallaj

I cannot remember your name,
Not even mine.
Deep tiredness
awaits me for my body to finally rest.

Deep sleep follows me wherever I go.
Where does the tiredness end
And the I begin?
Is it sleep that makes me discover my fears?

It seems so
For in my sleep I go through everything
That I need to.
At daytime
There is no rest for us.

Conscious mind to interfere
With one’s own madness,
resting like a beast in
My own turmoil.
Let me hear Your heartbeat
For all I know
I am still asleep.
