AZYGOUS INSOMNIA 

A free verse poem about the thoughts that keep one awake in the middle of the night.

spectres haunting

 

prismatic shadows

unseen in daylight’s glare

extend greedy talons as darkness falls

 

catacombs of doubt

misery’s maze to master

as midnight lasts a millennium

 

the abyss awaits

a gaping maw of black hatred

the rotting teeth of truth

smile

a putrid display

of hypocrisy

 

the mangled matrix of memory

a millstone

drowning me in depression’s downpour

 

lies defile innocence

sorrow’s serpents steal sanity

 

crawling

grovelling on shattered glass

bleeding

crying to nobody

heading for the light

that isn’t there

 

coughing up slugs of loneliness

climb on the crucifix

embrace the enemy

she bites deep

fulfil destiny

as she wraps me

in the silken shroud of solitude
