Insomniac

I live in paradise yet have not seen it

Inside these walls spent brain crawls

Crystal sheep shattering before light

Daring me to graze wishful slumber

Weary drifting out into chaotic ocean

I search for a piece of wood to grasp

My mind can no longer explain itself

Waves roaring over blurred rainbows

The beast takes a pose lacking grace   

Without sleep I'm now just a stranger

Your first line slapped me across the face, it's so brilliant & fresh. I love how your poem suggests that we could all live in paradise if we could only subdue the monsters within. Strong imagery thru-out painting the roadblocks most of us face when trying to process paradise (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

It's hard to sleep when there is nothing left to sleep about.
