Poem/Spoken Word: insomniac – 15/11/21

never again will I allow myself
to fall upon the railway sleepers
walking insomniac nightly
anything but a daydreamer
eyes wide, hollowed, intrigued, not:
I will follow the path of rightness –

aliveness and damnation? NO
attack that silence and go.

zombified, staring at the keys
pretending to be straight when my intent
is bent
sniggering to myself
boy am I so clever
im going under
into the depths of my distress

and I would smile
because the outcome
it’s what I ached for all the while
risking shuddering intentionally pondering
conundrum on the surface
and complexities within

insomniac insomniac what do you feel
when you glance within
take a squiz
sip of gin
spit out that poison
I don’t need to taste it
the only poison I need
is yours and mine
to feel so vibrant
to feel so alive.
