28 Hours (Insomnia)

Scratch Scratch Scratch
Click Drag

Scissor claws descending
Twilight disappearing
Eyes lifted high
Still sageing
Blankets wrapped tight

Scrape Pull

Who’s there?

Whir Click Whirrrr

Heavy weight
Then suddenly light
Lifting higher, higher
Looking down

Laying there
Crying pitiful sobbing


Husshhh Scrape Sshhh

and Praying

Please dear God

Click Scratch

Trembling eyes
Gritty sandy eyes

Head full
Letters and spaces
Tumbling out
Dropping like blood
Filling pages upon pages
….Upon pages

Don’t be so fucking nice to me
Let me go

K-sshhhh Switch

Let me go
