My drowsiness lasts already forever.
Who dared to sink me in that state?
Unknown villain seems to endeavor
To get me given up, but I am not afraid.
I'm making endless slow falling
In precipice without floor.
Then open the eyes, start crawling
Back from the illusion that launches mental war.
But the reality isn't much better.
My eyes are covered with hardly permeable dust.
I am like a nightwalker; it doesn't matter.
Someday it will get stopped, it must.
All I can see is vague, obscure shapes.
Strange emptiness has reigned inside.
It is devouring and I can feel it gapes.
Awaken me; I know enough of being quiet.
Rescue my mind before I am incapable of fighting
Just pull me out of slumber's hugs, I pray.
I call for mercy; they've been hiding
Me depriving of a chance to run away.
Awaken me, break the invisible cocoon,
Blast it to give me second birth.
Let me behold the shining silver moon
So perfectly inspiring to write another verse.
