Insomnia (poetry by Ashley Pentycofe)


I lay on this box of springs and cotton

I watch as the war begins

The Light fighting the arrival of Darkness

As Lightness slowly expires

Darkness creeps in

It takes over the land Light once ruled

Leaving some small colonies of Light

As even Darkness cannot survive without Light

Though time Light grows bigger

Soon there is a rebellion

Lightness begins to push Darkness to extinction

It keeps small souvenirs tucked away in small areas of the room

There, light will bask in its glory

Till Darkness grows

And history repeats itself
