We slept for a thousand years!!!

The world blanked
We slept for a thousand years
The old grew very old
With hair dropping off people
The face look so grin
More scarier than the scariest
In the young blanket’s night
The young oh!!
You would have seen their skins
The heavy sleep took the ride
Of their youthfulness pass the
Entrance of their graves
Cheering away in the
Horse’s ride of the dark moon

Minds crept
Under this heavy chain
As community flung theories
All around the world’s sphere
To retrace back the old minds

The result
Of these mild wake
In the existence of man
All await with heavy eyes
Speculations climbed the weight
And heights of more speculation
A heavy cough of fear
Breath into the minds of dwellers

The world
Hmmm.. the world
Has been hit with
The Hammer of heavy sleep
Driving the years into
The stairs of heavy deep
