hypnopompic hallucinations

let me live
in those seconds
between awakening
and awareness

when I don't remember
what I have lost

before the ache begins
and I feel like the target
at the gathering
of archers

before it feels like
all the knife throwers
are practicing
on me

let me live
in that place
between sleep
and awake

tell myself
we are still ours
