AinmosnInsomniA by Obi Martin


Monuments of tired eyes

wall up before my face.

collapsing ranks of sane and civil thought

leave violence in their place.


Drying wells of bitter peace

keep crying for my gaze

and clamor round my clanking cell

demanding rest from days.


My visions red and gray and

seven shades of stricken screaming black.

my thoughts are kiting high and taut

stretched useless on the rack.


Why have you forsaken

and whats left for me to say

apart from turning short and faceless purpose

towards the silent withered day.
