Keep Me Safe

Wrote this this morning after sleeping and/or wanting nothing more than to sleep for 16 hours.


Keep me safe
From my own self, O God, 
You are the one who made me this way.

You have let
Me cry myself to sleep,
Yet not the sleep of eternal peace.

I've written 
Poems dark as the ink used
To write them, without line breaks in life.
