Sleeping during the day,
staying awake at night;
opposite rhythm does harm, 
I gulp down strong coffee...
my body shakes like leaves
blown by a chilly breeze.

I don't wonder where
the spotty moon went;
I ponder on words:
leaking fate to loss... 
loneliness to cost. 

Owls look too sad
without moon rays;
they have no friend...
would that be me?

They know that
rhythm does harm.

They feel
fear, then

    Andrew. Congrats to you with your win. I love the part about owls. I think you had some syllable counts wrong. Otherwise, I bet this would have been in the list of ten!
