‘2 AM’

2 AM? Of course it’s ‘AM,’ I use a 24-hour clock, there’s only one ‘2’! *grin* ‘Course, you don’t, do you? Hence the title. *smirk* What, did you want some meaningful comments on this one? Read it, already, then go away.

‘2 AM’

yawning now, 2 am
sirens ail
neighbours fuck
dogs bark
who can sleep like that?
eyes are bleary
hard to focus
killing time
reading
waiting for the sound
to fade

‘I Can’t Sleep’

Another piece of silliness scribbled in my journal during the night, this one as I wait to fall asleep, tired, but insomniac. Some time in 2003.

‘I Can’t Sleep’

I can’t sleep
the rain is falling
slowly
outside my window

drip
drip
drip

the rhythm is soothing
but the sleep
won’t come

‘The Telephone Rings’

Does this need an introduction? Didn’t think so. From some time in 2003.

‘The Telephone Rings’

The telephone rings
and I jump
I hate that blasted thing
but it might be important
this time
I finish up in the john
and race
for the ‘phone
but it’s only my mother

‘The Pain’

Well, gosh, if I told you what had instigated this, I’d spoil its charm! HAH! Yes, I think it’s better that I leave off the mundane explanations for this one. Suffice to say, it was physical.

‘The Pain’

It gets hold of me and won’t let go,
my chest tightens, my hands burn;
thoughts racing, fingers tracing,
random patterns in the air.

where does it come from,
and when will it go;
or will it ever leave me,
I really don’t know.

but is sinks it claws into me,
and tears away my flesh;
it pounds inside my brain,
and makes me beg for death.
