Sleep alludes me,
It has decided to skip out the bedroom window and another visitor beds me,
Has a way of reminding you that you are never alone.
Stalks the corner of your mind,
Reminding you that you are truly never alone,
A chill down your spine as a unwelcome tongue traces the back of your neck,
I am finding this moment of quiet at 4 am,
Not alarming but a continuing reminder that my mind
Is alive and on fire.
Burning embers smoldering and waiting.
