A Dreamless Haunting

In darkness of night, 
I sit. Without light,
pondering  profound questions.

Why do I sit? I perceive
I don't dare sleep.
It's not an option.

Dreams haunt my mind.
I can't lie down. I sit.
Is it just hallucinations?

Or, is it real?
Does it feel?
Can it breathe?

The mist of it swirls.
I sit. Eyes wide, watching,
the shadowy abstractions.

Then-  when the dark changes...
I sit. The light now rearranges.
Gone are the nightly demonstrations.

This is something that many of us deal with at one time or another. When faestock posted these images, I knew I had to do something with them. This conceptual piece of art shows how your mind works when you really want to sleep. This is something really different for me. I wrote a poem sometime ago about insomnia, and I thought I would share it here with you as well.

I believe I have included all of the brush packs that I used. You know how it is in the middle of creating, and I forgot to write down each one as I used it. If you see something I missed, please let me know, and I will add it.

Thank You Hug  for the use of your stock!!!

Everything else owned and painted by me using Photoshop.
