Insomnia

Poetry
Poppy
Petals
Beacons
Night
 
I cannot sleep
I cannot dream
I close my eyes
My mind goes blind
Just for a second
In an infinite loop
Of dreamless drain
To start again
 
Flower
Petals
Beacons
Night
 
I was a witch
in previous lives
And this is why
I cannot sleep
I am forever burning
In insomniac heaven
 
I need more petals
Cradling me into
Languid death
To start again
An infinite loop
Of dreamful drowsiness
 
Poppy
Petals
Beacons
Night

  1. Wow. This is certainly a beautiful poem. The refrain of Poppy petals Beacon nights…really stark and bold. Way to go.
