insomnia i must make of you a friend
instead of erasure, you shall become my constant shadow
lurking deep beneath my eyes
because of you, i have sacrificed alertness for perpetual lullness--
dullness of the mind
i am reduced to inanimate thoughts limping
flailing, agitated, warring


  1. My medicines gave me insomnia for two weeks. Hated it, since I can usually sleep whenever & wherever I want.

  2. I hope you're sleep patterns are back to normal, Ovais.
    It sounds wonderful to be able to control your sleep. I get these absurd headaches that don't know how to cure themselves.
