A sleepless dreamer. A slumbering pessimist. Collision.

Insomnia

still

Unmoving. You're an inanimate object. The air is your blanket.

tired

Eyelids seem to be weighted down with bricks Dry everything Exhaustion outweighs discomfort.

lying to myself

How long have you remained here. Exhaustion motivates no movement, despite curiosity. Not worth it.

time

An illusion? Or so you've heard. A mirage, a vague semblance of something the was once there.

silence

Pressing, a sweeping thing, one claims to long for. Your attempts to slumber remain profitless.

no that's a lie

Soft, soft, jarring, stop. Cars outside the window. Stop. The clock, a malevolent snare drum. Stop

almost silence

Senes sluggish and heightened at the same time. Hypnosis. You feel. You wait.

shattered not shattered

That's how the saying goes, correct? Like glass. But no. It's just a matter of how hard one is listening.

broken gently

The air seems to quiver, with anticipation. Waiting. Waiting. Waiting. You shft.

movment

The world breaks free of its trance. A sudden thing. You let out a breath. Your surroundings do the same.

release

Eyes opened. An almost tedious process. Sluggish. Lethargic. Small movements.

ice

A shiver, a soft surge as your foot touched the cold floor

surrender

You give up. Movements still gentle and slow. Moments embedded with exhaustion. You leave.
