Caffeine Veins

Keep me awake, just one more sip
Repressing things I hide too deep
The downside has been way to steep
The nightmares I get in my sleep.

My eyes dilate, my heart beats fast
And I flip through the pages past –
The hauntings that left me aghast
And memories I wished would last.

Should I settle for just one more?
This addiction rooted to the core
Has left me longing, like before
Though biiter tastes have left me sore.

Keep me awake, just one more sip
I stop the tears I try to keep
This has dragged us way too deep
And I should grab myself some sleep.
