the in-between

the in-between

A Poem by hiraethstill
"

hovering between asleep and awake

"
frustratingly i hover
between slumber and consciousness
my mind and eyes
buzzing, rushing
running full tilt
toward nothing
i deny it
its just
a belligerent bladder
an insatiable stomach
the urge to unfetter myself 
from unfinished work
but
reality lies awake with me
takes your place
and the safety
of delusion
slips away into the sleepless night
