Insomnia : A Poem


Night comes wrapped in  raven wings

and in it’s solitary loveliness

like forbidden lovers

the mind and heart meet


thoughts stumble on each other

like perplexed mass

strange voices touched with pain

glide past each other like spirits


sleep eludes me in your presence

and in absence, tears keep it at bay


I lie still

in silent mirages of hope

the illusionist takes over


a world streams out of me

and dissolves in me

dreams rise and wall

like ocean waves

quiescent I watch
