insomniac's lament

One of my faves.  Read my review {here}.

teeth clench the slip 
of slumber
waiting to usher me under
while flickers of films
the day kept at bay
seep under my lashes
I coax my fingers 
calm my skin
beg my brain
to walk the path
to quiet

I thought I lost this poem.  It turned up tonight, a long lost friend.  Last year was the year of insomnia.  Thankfully I have remembered how to sleep again.
