the moon taunts me with its harsh light
pouring through my smudged window
as I shift on the creaky mattress
I yawn once again, eyes tearing up
my vision disconnects me from reality
hazy dark objects in my room squirm
never settling on a defined shape
teasing my exhausted mind
I face away, rolling on my back
sigh out of relief
start to float
my body jerks with a violent spasm
inhaling and exhaling rapidly
blood pressure rising out of fright
the fear of falling always gets me
"another sleepless night my dear"
mocks the moon high in its perch
gleaming on my glazed over eyes

Another sleepless night, my dear.
