I'll just leave this here... Yes, yes, yes. I can so relate to this though could not have written this anywhere near as good as you have. I love the pauses in my opinion the effect (or is that affect) they have is very important.
I really like this dude and the acrostic is killer,
Insomnia is a thing that is best described with an F word. If I can get to sleep it's not so bad, unfortunately that is the problem. Once asleep I'm out of it. I may wake sometimes but not so often of late. However I rarely get to sleep before 1 or 2 in the morning and when you have to rise at 6am you are a wreck for the entire day.
I pity those who go through the entire night, I've been there and it's not funny.
Smoldering its wicked wick, ..I was disappointed that you used the american spelling for smouldering.
On endless razor thread. . .
Manic curls a thining smile, (thinning)
Night's where he likes to dance;
It's death by breath, so salty vile. . .
Awake, I weep, upon his Lance.
I'm not sure if these 'errors' were a deliberate ploy on your part to tie in with in the insomnia subject or whether the site self corrected the spelling but...I just found it weird coming from you my friend. Still, I did enjoy the poem...
lol - thank you Hellon. I did write this bleary eyed, but the mistake should have been picked up before now. I will amend them, including the American spellings. I guess this is the trouble when I write directly onto the PnQ page.
Thank you, friend, for you, ever insightful comment. Praise to you!
