A Minimalists Guide to Coping

Less is more,
so they say.
I will try,
start today.

The less I think,
the less the pain.
Turn off the brain,
give it rest.
Sweet coma,
might be best.

Shutting down.
It's okay.
Awake again,
in better days.
Sweet repose,
almost there.
Getting cold,
losing air.

Dreaming now,
better world,
all is well.

Wake me up,
when this hell,
has passed on.
But if not,
leave me be,
with sweet dreams
of fantasy.
