Insomnia & A Bed of Nails

a living abyss
sleep keeps alive
bed of rusty nails
caress inches of flesh

eyes become heavy
with no satisfaction

damn moon blinding
insomnia trance sun

black shadows conquer
cold sheets warm

wakeful dreams
resurface with dusk

            as scars repent
to another battle lost
