Insomnia

11pm
I'm in my
Nightgown
Spiraling down

And by 2am
There are no more sounds
Demons scream
Still, I've yet to fall asleep

3am
I am my only friend
Except for the thoughts
That are seeping in..

4am
You still can't hear a peep
And that's when the haunting feeling
Starts to creep..

6am
The sunrise
Except there is no
Light in my eyes.
Wishing my bloodshot
Eye sockets were clearer
My reflection is swaying
As I stand before my mirror

8am
I pick up my pen
Writing down
How this happened
Again

Dear diary:
"I see this written 
On every page
But it seems like nothing
Is ever going to change
It all spirals down 
At 11pm..
Night time
You were never my friend."
