My Pillow At 2am

Written by: Jo Hayton

12 o'clock is too soon
Eyes still in spasm fury
Blinking blindly, blinking blindly
Insomnia part and parcel

Outcast by colourful days
I clock watch, crippled
When I cannot make a world pause
My pillows awaits at 2am

Their roses attend me
Walls of elation
Wasting on a waking world
My dismayed heart lies failing
