Insomnia

 

Awake through the night

Trembling thoughts of the day

My only solstice

In the dark which I lay

 

Today or tomorrow

Never find the words

For the darkness that must follow

Oblivious winding turns

 

The darkness keeps me happy

Far away from the light

But only for forgiveness

Do I seek the night

 

Dampen the light

So I may find the day

When I no longer fight

The sun’s revealing rays

  1. I enjoyed the kinship with darkness expressed in this poem; it’s connection to forgiveness. And I loved the lines “Today or tomorrow/ Never find the words/ For the darkness that must follow.” I like that you describe insomnia and a fight between light and dark. Beautifully written.

  2. Insomnia is a tussle between light and dark in so many different ways..it leads to a confusion and a weird sense of acceptance (if that makes sense)..which you capture perfectly..Jae
