Circling Thoughts of The Night

Sleep evades me this night

Tauntingly it stays

Just out of reach;

On the tips of my eyelashes.

 

Tauntingly, it stays

In the heaviness of my eyelids,

On the tips of my eyelashes;

Tempting me further .

 

In the heaviness of my eyelids

I see strange shapes in shadows

Tempting me further;

Twisting thoughts.

 

I see strange shapes, in shadows

Stretching long and thin,

Twisting  thoughts

And failing to let reality in,

 

Stretching long and thin.

Cool winds creep onto my skin.

And failing to let reality in

Are the fanciful fantasies so deeply embedded

 

Cool winds creep onto my skin

Ruffling my hair.

Are the fanciful fantasies so deeply embedded

Into my naked flesh?

 

Ruffling my hair

Pale fingers trace patterns

Into my naked flesh;

The discomfort fades.

 

Pale fingers trace patterns;

Sleep evades me this night.

The discomfort fades,

Just out of reach.
