Insomnia

A Poem by Desert Knave
"

Not sleeping well lately ... so I might as well get a poem out of it.

"

The broken man he paces, paces

His tired heart it races, races

Back and forth

Forth and back

His mind goes ugly places, places


Another night of walking, walking

To the walls he's talking, talking

His thoughts so ugly

So ugly his thoughts

His mental state is shocking, shocking


The broken man he paces, paces ...

I can almost see the insomniac pacing through the darkness. It is a terrible feeling...a feeling of panic...when sleep will just not enter. You have expressed it so well, Jim. Lydi**
