Insomnia

All those childhood nights constructing roads my adult self would be forced to follow.

Nights leading to weeks to months and years of ineffective rest —

The insomniac’s nightmare.

It seems a shame to consume further opportunity for rest on inexplicable reverie,

But what is sleep without dreams?

Insomniac no longer — just another unwilling to close my eyes.
