Sunrise, sunset

I spend my time waiting to waste away.
Sunrise, sunset.
Stuck in my mind, at war with my thoughts.
Day in, day out.
Sunrise, sunset.
The speed of the spinning world keeps me pinned to the bed.
Staring into an infinite abyss waiting to be devoured whole.
Sunrise, sunset.
The machine keeps beeping but the flatline is evident.
In an awoken coma scared stiff of the outside world.
Sunrise, sunset.
The important thoughts get lost in translation as the mind keeps turning.
Things that need to be said, quests to be conquered, demons defeated.
Sunrise, sunset.
There is a glimmer that the darkness will fade.
That day will come when I will greet the world with a grin.
From every Sunrise to Sunset.
