Induced SleepUnnoticed numbness spreading deep


Unnoticed numbness spreading deep
A feeling quite akin to sleep
And yet aware of what's out there
Your mind is still awake

Somehow thicker, stuffed with fog
A dullness diving in a bog
No way to move, not anywhere
Your body gets a break

Falling victim to the drug
Safely laying, nice and snug
Into spaces of your dreams
Who knows what will be done

Some excitement in this state
A helplessness that won't abate
Fantasies of hidden schemes
Not knowing when it's gone

None can know the ache inside
None can know the heat you hide
Your body still and paralyzed
The only thing that's hurt, your pride
