I'll check the news, Then turn off my phone. Switch off the light, And crawl into my cocoon. I'll stare in darkness, Waiting for light, A flash of writing, With a wave of delight. Some nights it's just dark, Some nights it's bright, Some nights I crawl away, And feast upon my lonely fright. Gnaw on bones of past lovers, And wrestle with fantasies of memory. Underneath my covers. Breaking down again in certainty, Only in the low hours, Am I stuck in never-ending cycles? To avoid the angel on the window ledge , who does nothing but glowers, with its golden hooded eyes, Again and again.
