Insomniac Hell

Insomniac Hell

It’s six AM and I’ve been up since four.
That fancy-woman, fickle Sleep, has fled
Don’t know if I can take this anymore.

My mind is like an ever-swinging door
Admitting trickster thoughts into my head.
It’s six AM and I’ve been up since four.

My eyes, like traitors in a bloody war,
Surrender to the summonses of dread.
Don’t know if I can take this anymore.

Wide open in the dark, despite torpor,
Like lifeless, barren planets spin instead.
It’s six AM and I’ve been up since four.

Defying black that swallows all before
They see the grim parade around my bed.
Don’t know if I can take this anymore.

Is there no sanctuary, no succor,
My mind condemned to Sisyphean tread?
It’s six AM and I’ve been up since four.
Don’t know if I can take this anymore.
