Insomnia

I do not know where we will go
I cannot tell you anymore
We’ll find our dreams or so it seems
Upon some other distant shore

We chase that way from day to day
And yet we can’t catch anything
Resting deep in distraction’s sleep
The slumbering of a crownless king

No closed eyes see what yet may be
Beyond imagination’s reach
We spend our lives where darkness thrives
Ignoring what the world can teach

The clock unwinds and then we find
We are without what’s not within
Before I woke the dream’s truth spoke
I found that I had never been
