heartburn when i swallow
limp hair and broken nails
exhausted lungs and aching legs carry me to my bed

shuffle through shallow dreams
to find the one in black and white

long days awake after short nights
fast asleep

i think something is missing

just like the Buddha that rests above me
my eyes are closed
but i am not asleep
