Half Asleep

Waliur Rashid

I wake up in the middle of the night.

I don’t know where I am or where I’ve been.

The road is lit only by the moonlight.

Is this a dream or am I really awake?

I look back at the road, maybe I made a mistake.

A wrong turn made a long time back.

I can’t remember now, it’s all black.


Maybe if I could go back I could take the other road.

But my feet keep moving forward, it’s in my code.

Remember life isn’t just one bad episode.

In the end, there is always hope.


Wali enjoys lying in bed doing nothing. But he does enjoy a good Lovecraftian movie!
