Insomniac

Darkness eludes me

In the bright light of day
I wrestle with pillows and sheets
While the curtains try and fail
To block out the sun

In the dead of night
I am flooded by fluorescence
As the blackness knocks on my door
Like an old familiar friend

I would let him in
I would surrender to sleep
I would lie down and dream
But there is work to be done
