How can I sleep?

How can I sleep when you are in pain? From the sky of disgrace, I step in the land of utmost decency. As my legs try to make footprints, my heaven calls me back. But how can I go when you aren’t okay? Your breath I could hear, at the moment of your uneasiness. Senseless I come to be, as I think you are my responsibility. Apart from the schedule of living happily, my happiness doesn’t lie in places you aren’t a part of. As the water turns into red, my heart becomes starts to manifest. I could sense myself in a world where there is nobody for me to protect. The stars keep on shining, it’s an uncertain night when the moon comes to my mind the brightness becomes more bright.

But how can I sleep when you are in pain?
