My Only Company Is Insomnia

Source

In a quiet space between night and day

I'm alone for a moment in a world of emotions.



These moments now come so rarely

and they are so precious to me.



For these moments I am thankful,

because they mean freedom to me.



I am free to think, dream and write,

but I can't seem to catch any sleep.



Slowly the clock is ticking

and I am not enjoying it anymore,

not the way I did just a minute ago

during the precious moment.



When there are no more words to find in the night,

life gets filled with emptyness and loneliness,

and my only company is insomnia.

Well I hope this does not describe you. I have rarely had insomnia, but the times I have had it were exhausting. Now I sleep like a baby. :)

Lovely descriptions in this, and I'm thrilled that you are writing more of late.

billybuc! You are first again. :) It was just last night I couldn't sleep, and then I wrote four poems. I've published three of them today. Now it's actually night again. I guess I should go to bed now...

Know this Made, whatever is your sleep pattern of lack thereof; the result is beautiful and lovely. Perhaps you should not try too hard to change. I am glad you stayed awake for this one.

Hi Ericdierker, I usually sleep at nights, and if I don't sleep it's because of words that have to come out of my head. LOL! Thank you so much!

Insomnia is right up there with having a headache. They are both dibilitating. Insomnia can also cause panic if you have to get up early in the morning and haven't slept. Get some rest, Made!

Hi bravewarrior, I have been off work for four weeks now. I guess I have slept too much. I'll be back at work on Monday 7 am. Headache is no fun at all either. Thank you! :)

Voted up and beautiful. Nice sentiments. Sometimes I'm the same way. I get inspired and I write late into the night and time just has a way of slipping by.
