Mar 2016
The hungry beast.
She left me alone
For a couple of weeks;
She had left me in liberty

She has now set herself free

She's the invisible spider
Crawling all over my body.
She's the magical monster
Climbing inside of me.

I dread the nights,
I put up a fight;
Insomnia likes to cheat

She promises an hour
That hour becomes *eight

The sun leaves me blinded
I'm not ready for today...
I've been denied my right
To a peaceful, wonderful sleep.

Inspired by Olufunke Kolapo's take on insomnia.. and ofcourse, a wide-eyed night.
