The whistle of a distant train pierces the night

Loneliness swallows the darkness

Unspoken words consume the mind

Strange thoughts invade reality as walls close in

Time painfully creeps by until almost at a stand still

Slowly strangling the will of its ability to resist

A disoriented half dream world

where corners of the imagination

shatter into vibrant fragments

In the eternal plight of sleeplessness
