The Entry: Wide Awake
Where art thou sleep?
Far away – beyond the reach
Counting on of no avail
Tick tock, tick tock
Restless mind irks
I can’t see you, walls of unsleeping thickens
Neither sign of dreams nor sleep
Heavy eyelids – the struggle persists
Once again you remain invincible
Even night has fallen asleep
Here I lie awake having a conversation
with my imaginary friend
I stare into the distance
Greeting restlessness and over thinking
They now know me by name
Rendered vulnerable I had become
With nothing but sleepless promises and pain
The ceiling had become my own cinema
A front row seat I had earned
Lights, camera, action!!!
The night was ours
