Insomnia

Insomnia

Dark silence rolls in through the window

My ears straining to hear but a peep

No sound whisper’s out from a shadow

Insomnia is death to my sleep

Hidden in plain sight

I am hiding in plain sight
Camouflaged by insignificance
In my day to day fight
Despite this
Attention is not what I seek
Just a fucking sedative will do
So I can put my mind To sleep
Dark thoughts
Continue to creep
The light is getting further to reach
I continue to write,
Each line looking ever more bleek
But I am a stubborn fucker
And I’ll give it once more into the breach.

Only A Winesap

Only A Winesap

At times I see a shadow
in twilight’s fallow
behind the friar’s gate
with my spunky fine fellow

giving a pause
deciding my fate
in a state of my insomnia
listening to the raven’s call

buts it’s only a Winesap
an apple on a tree
and a ghost in a bikini
of my mind’s fantasy

Mind War

Mind War

I sit
looking around at the mess I have made
unsure where to start

My life is unraveling
complete chaos
and not enough time

not enough time
for myself….

So can I find the reasons
to make it through the night?

Her memories
like
the moon.
a
loyal companion
on
my sleepless nights…

Good Night #Poetry

Good Night #Poetry

good night
Have fun with needles
injected with serum of insomnia
sing your poems so loudly
virus become deaf
and finally fail to respond the tests
and report will come
with the result said
no voices of virus
you may go back
to your happy abode
of health and love

Nothing is louder
Than silent tears
And 2 a.m. overthinking

Insomnia insecurities #Poetry

Insomnia insecurities #Poetry

I’m losing friends like i’m losing sleep
apologies don’t work, and neither do sheep
don’t go, because i want you to stay
but don’t lie to me, you’re leaving someday

Why these but?

During the night I can’t stop my self from asking the questions that haunt me
I have stayed up countless night not able to sleep because of my fear of having to much to fear
For example if there 7.2 million people on this planet that I’m so minuscule that I’m nothing but a number
If there’s millions of atoms in a human body than to an atom I’m greater or equal to a world
And at the same time my number of atoms in my body compare nothing to that of a universe so my existence is meaning less
And yet I still ask why because I’m just stupid enough to understand that I don’t have a meaning if I ask what my meaning is like countless others
Countless because no one cares to count the number of meaningless thoughts we have

Why am i writting so rubbish.

Still awake

I lay awake at night
thinking
reading
writing
still awake

My mind moves fast
never stopping or slowing down
keeping me awake
until the sun peaks out.

Now I lay awake at dawn
thinking
reading
writing
still awake

Someone please come and make me sleep.😖
