Floating Flickers

Light off—thoughts on.

My body is tired

My mind is wide awake.

Shadows appear.

Night after night.

The flickers float

in the seemingly silent room.

No one sees them.

No one feels them.

Only I have to bear them.

Night after night.

They surround me,

Pulling me into their spiral.

They stifle me.

They take my breath away.

Until I think I am suffocating.

Night after night.

Only me alone

With shadows and shards.

With unbearable silence

And even worse noise.

Just me and my worries.

Night after night.

Light on—thoughts off.

My mind is tired

My body is wide awake.

The shadows, they remain.

Night after night.
