3 A.M. ceiling~#insominia #poetry #themagicshop


Words fail its potency

The ceiling becomes your universe

Anxiety is now your blanket

Sink down into this endless void

Your thoughts dance to no music

Brief visits to places hold you forever

Losing in nightly battlegrounds is now your norm

Time relentlessly ignored your dilemma

Staring without seeing

Isolated next to your partner

They’re vacationing in R.E.M.

You continue to suffer in silence

Finally, the stream of thinking gets damned

Your body surrenders

What’s left over now becomes bliss

Awaking only to now face the loneliness of the day
