Dead silent night..

Dead silent night,

the clock ticking,
the light flickering,
the heart beating,
and the sleep so far away..
2nd day in a row
didnt get much sleep
too tired
yet cant sleep..
Thoughts springing
now and again
but i listen to the clock ticking..
but i gaze at the point where
the three walls are meeting..
and i hum the words in my mind
not wanting the mind to race with the thoughts
dont have that energy now
so i hum these words
as i try to fall asleep…
Once divided…nothing left to subtract…

Some words when spoken…can’t be taken back…
Walks on his own…with thoughts he can’t help thinking…
Future’s above…but in the past he’s slow and sinking…
Caught a bolt ‘a lightnin’…cursed the day he let it go…

Isn’t it something?
