Pressed against a predisposed cage

My mind imprisoned to stay awake


Restless hours I attempt to escape

Yet, I am not privy to the gift of rest


Night my companion- refuses release

While the ‘others’ blessed with normality sleep


I am my own clock absent of a dial

The essence of a reluctant child


All is quiet in the hours I toil

As I dwell suspended in a moonlit cell


Yes night, she is but a seductress fiend

Enticing my mind, forbidding me to dream


O’ how I long to awake at dawn

To rise with the sun’s gently woven song


However, for me this greeting remains unseen

For countless sunrises have bled me to sleep


The birds- so chorus, announce earth's harmony

Mimic miniature intrusions with chaotic screams


Pecking at my ears with such peaceful strife

While I plead for silence, and try to cling to night


My stomach swims as nausea plays

Daytime again; dark circles to erase


Weary now I can retire, and wake before three

So I can pretend to be like everyone else- except me


*until tonight*
