Staring. I spent the night staring
into darkness thrashing in and out
of sleep. Time moved with the breaks on,
slowly past this dark, hot night. My
Queen purring close to my hip is no
comfort to me for she sleeps and purrs
while I endlessly forge through worrisome
thoughts. Nothing surrounds me, only time
and darkness. My mind is twisting back
and forth, no clarity . I'm tired, the
pillows are too warm on this summer day,
I need rest... but sleep escapes me.
