Insomnolence


City streets flooded with a hallowed glow.
Spilling in through my window.
Sparking the minds eye.
Sleep is fleeting unto the night sky.
No stars to be seen.
Removed from the universe, or so it seems.
No longer can I dream.
I can only exist.
Motionless, yet racing.
I gaze at the ceiling.
As if I look away it will fall.
Thinking of all the things that I've done wrong.
Trying to fix the past in my head.
So many things I should have said.
I am weary of my warped mind.
And the rest that eludes me.
Time mocks me.
The clock isn't stopping.
The waking world gives me no comfort.
I can't shut my eyes.
Soon there will be sunshine to caress me.
Like thousands of warm hands.
Carrying me to another day.
Just carry me away.
