The Insomniac’s Limbo

    Oh, sweet seduce of sleep.
    I got so much done today,
    yet I have done nothing.

    For the soul
    is restless and ravaging.
    An irrepressible lust for Passion.
    To create something that, for once,
    has meaning

    in my time.

    I can’t fall asleep – it is too silent
    Too easy for exciting fantasies and
    possible possibilities and
    worthless planning and
    comparing and
    self-loathing
    to slither under these sheets, injecting itself into my bleeding soul.

    I can’t fall asleep – too many voices
    Please stop shouting past each other.

    My heart is racing,
    my eyes wide open but

    I am dead.

    Until the morning I am good enough
    to do what I love.
    To steep proud like the rich morning Sun,
    but dawn never comes.
