Insomnia

Cerebral Conflict

Moonlight over Hobart / Meka Carter

Darkness eludes my eyes

Yet the sun remains at peace

Against a sky bluer than my soul, stars gleam

While the moonlight witnesses my grief


Every day and night, recycling routines

Familiar reminders of loneliness

Constantly nag at me

As I deliberately avoid mirrors

Taking sidesteps to dodge witnessing this mess


From inside I scream

Plead for stability

Overanalyze dreams unreached

Struggle to move on and forget


My mind, fatigued by tension

Daily self-persecution

For decisions unable to amend

Separates my psyche from reality

Causes unshakable dependence


On sadness, while I contemplate

Walking towards dusk

Resting my eyes, able to dream

Of triumphantly draining the virulent blood
