Midnight Awakenings

Midnight Awakenings

A Poem by Markus Anthony

I find it hard to sleep past midnight. A lot of throughts just comes in my mind, I can't help but right some of them down.

The hunger of body
And the soul reaches out
Parents awake, busy
Baking pastries, inventing masks
This time of age I grow weak
For food
In the refrigerator
For company
Of someone in the past.
It keeps me awake past midnight
The fantasy in my brain
Yet I remain docile, solitary
Despite cruising
In the rivers of comfort
In the banks I falter
Enslavin memories
And I drown
And surrender.

I deny love and accept crazy

Will this ever end, my writing
Will I ever get drained
Like the ink in my pen
As the roosters call in the mornight light.
Maybe, it is the end for today
I'll wake again at midnight.

There is a melancholy voice in your poetry Markus. In this one your description of insomnia and an overactive mind seems to have a mixed feel. One sense is you simply being accepting of this the other is a deeper scream for sleep!
