A Glimpse at Insomnia

Prompt: A sleepless night in 3 minutes

Alone in the darkness it is silent except for the steady humming of the air filter on the fish tank.

The occasional pebble stirred by the cat fish residents breaks the otherwise eerie atmosphere as I look out the window and watch the night.

With stars covered in a blanket of clouds it is even darker out there.

Time passes slowly, yet insomnia is melting my dreams like candles and I feel the night cry out for daybreak and the muted buzz of the alarm.

I grieve for the night as the sky lightens in its mourning before the dawn.
