Dreaming Insomniac

Tossing and turning
The hot flusters that rule the night
Moaning and groaning
Eyes closed mind wide open
Sobbing and sighing 
A hundred voices in an empty room
Your pupils whizz around under your eyelids
Your chest heaves 
Cheeks red and damp
As you turn your weak body to the made-up side of the bed
All neat and pristine 
Unlike your own which is damp and disarrayed
 You hear the ticking time
And you let the sound of time take you back 
Back to when you shared this bed with another 
Remember the peaceful slumber with your lover
Now you are an insomniac in solitude
Tormented by memories while the world is silent and still
You toss and turn
Trying to flee from the past 
While he moves forward soundly 
Poor insomniac
You dreaming insomniac.
