Fitful oblivion
By Relena Peacecraft

I hate this feeling
drugged out
unaware.
Living
but not really;
wandering
in my mind.
I feel like I'm floating
somewhere
in oblivion
somewhere between
the real world
and dream.
I wish to sleep
oh how I ache for it
I cannot.
I wish to wake
but I cannot.
I can only float and wander
in my own
not-quite waking dream...
Nightmare.

Mother, I will never take Nyquil again!
