POEM

in a sleepless trance

I hold stares - I sing to the moon

Rigid, motionless - senseless woes

Walls whisper, wolves murmur 

Fables engender - wise as fog

My power wander where twilight wails

Eyes murky - shadows in shield 

A collide of the heart with the soul

Body settled flat - logic declining

Love's revelations - impeccably muting

With intentions so innocent - childlike

Resting florets - wrapped in dewdrops

But brain nerves beating - in vigilance

That pernicious aftermath - within the hollow

Like the crackling wood of time

And pebbled strides - in retaliation

Melodious shrieking - saxophones, drums howling

Spirited impulses - dreamlike, vivid

Myself crumbling

By the sweetest - INSOMNIA of me
