"Insomnia" - Pajaaa, 2014
“Insomnia” – Pajaaa, 2014

i can’t sleep:

not tonight,

not while

a hundred

a thousand

a million

runaway

thoughts

flit and flutter

in my

head.

 

i can’t dream:

not tonight

not when

visions

walk past me

like figures

from a

storybook

come to

life

in living colour.

 

i can’t

stay still

not while the

air

around me

buzzes

volatile

vibrant

vivacious;

millions of

tiny unseen

explosions

reactions

emotions

come sparkling

to the

surface.

 

how can

one sleep,

how can

one rest

when a living

breathing

world

beckons you

to come

and play?
