there, in the supposed comfort of worn-out blankets,
stuffed icons of far-off memories, and sinking pillows.
with palms upturned and marred with half-moon dents of frustration.
eyes wide-open to stretches of vast darkness.
ears tuned to hear the beating of Father Time's heart.
my own sinks into the caverns of my ribcage,
beats synchronizing with an unheard melody.
demons crawl beneath my skin,
their success burning into my veins.
atrocities, flaws, regrets, burdens
tumble, toss, and turn in the care of my conscience.
silhouettes of my respective ghosts dance above me,
painting the dark with their memoria.
my eyes refuse to shut,
denying me the sight of the stars beneath my eyelids.
i've been sleeping strange.
