A waking hell

insomnia you waking hell
for whom the bell tolls
it tolls for me
please ease
so I can sleep
instead my eyelids blink blink, blink blink
one hundred thousand times to the brink
of dawn of day
with it’s bright orange rays
and my eyes still open
squint
with yet another days imprint
I’m left to long for the long days end
in hopes the night’s revenge
is kept at bay
if only for today
but it visits again as it did yesterday
I’m not religious but I may have to pray
for serenity and sleep deep
for it’s not within my reach
blink blink, blink… blink… blink…
