Sleepless

Form: Free Verse

In darkness my eyes stare
searching outward
seeking inward
the precious hours of sleep
sleep the space the soul can regret
sleep the place the body can rest
sleep the space the mind can forget
forget the pain
of being awake and remembering
reminiscent of lost dreams and stinging eyes
stinging eyes that never sleep
stinging eyes scared by endless tears
refusing to close they stare
into the night
