Sleep, dream and memory

Love and Pain (Vampire) by Edvard Munch (1895)

I have been sleeping a few hours a day
My eyelids are very busy
They can’t understand that night is not a day
The closed curtains are an invitation
And they wake up my eyes and invite them to stay up all night

I have been sleeping a few hours a day
Yes, it’s true
But it doesn’t stop me from dreaming
And in my vivid dreams
I smell the books
The hot kiss from the sun

I feel ~ and how I feel ~
The comforting peace of a memory
That seemed lost
But my dream brought it back

I lost the person
But I will never lose my memory
