The Uninvited


One night soon
I will want
nothing but sleep,
only oblivion until
I awaken, to rest
undisturbed
by the uninvited,
those who long ago
sold their souls,
will offer again
to buy my own,
not knowing
I will always
sleep alone.
My alarm rings
more for them,
than it ever
rang for me.
For this time
when they awaken,
I will sleep
in eternity.
