The Endless Night

Insomnia

The hours stretch through
the endless night of infinite dark; 
silence harboring secrets
from a subconscious
reliving nightmares

Coffee runs from overflowing cups
during the daylit minutes
that mock that eerie wakefulness
breaking me at 4am

I wonder if these eyes
will one day cease their constant swimming
through these breaking tides
of Insomnia

But for now,
I embrace the comfort of Nothing
for dozing seconds
until the alarm clock
shrieks to begin the cycle
all over again.
