Night Time

Nightfall

Balancing on a tightrope

Between sleep

And wake

Eyes small

And now my hands grope

Trying to sleep

For Christs sake

-

Night time

So estranged

What happens

When you fall

Asleep

Hear them weep

Pile them

In a heap

The nightmares

When you sleep

-

Insomniac

I am

To sleep

Unfamiliar

To me

I am

Insomniac

-

Night time

Is my time

All the time

I wait

For sleep

-

Darkness

Around me

And I see

Night time
