Insomnia – I lost count

But tonight

Unlike other nights

I don’t want to sleep.

I want to stay awake

Till black turns to blue

To orange and yellow.

Till the sun gently fills

the world

with colour

Till silence gives way

to songs of the birds

Till empty roads are filled

with smoke spewing motors

Till the creatures of the night

Retreat to homes of the day

I want to be awake

Till it is no longer today.
