Insomnia: 8th August 2013, 4.45 AM

If you can’t sleep at night it is because you are awake in somebody else’s dream…

darkness
hangs thick
at 5am
can’t sleep
thoughts toil
rusty cogs
grinding
churning
an obsolete machine

soon dawn will beckon
the first warble will sing

I hope
I am not awake
to hear it…
