Sleep Now

I sleep soundly. Peaceful. Calm.
In those precious moments when,
heads hit pillows, dreams begin.
I rest easy. Weary. Drained.
My heart beats steady,
my brain, echoes a sweet refrain.
I don't think. Empty. Cold.
I give in to the silence,
I put consciousness on hold.
I breathe deeply. In. Out.
I free myself from judgment,
I free myself from doubt.
My heart is heavy. Guilty. Tense.
I put this to the side,
I ease my restlessness.
I'm torn in two. Here. There.
I don't know how or why,
I can't tell now, I lie.
I sleep soundly. Peaceful. Calm.
I put it all behind me,
for a moment, I begin again.

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EDT/-4.0/DST' instead
