Insomnia

Images flashing

as I toss and turn

no part of the bed is safe

I close my eyes in hope

yet they open again

light enters the room

as I toss and turn

wish it didn’t

shades of black suit my sleepless eyes

faceless objects bare down on me

holding my dreams

at bay, out of sight

A moment arrives

as I toss and turn

when the body aches

it wants to go

I remain in my bed

under the sheet hoping

that the dreams will come

run the insomnia away

 I remain sleepless

and I toss and I turn
