"I'll build a castle out of all the bricks you throw at me."

You are an omnipresent cold embrace

That keeps me shivering
Through the empty nights

You are the dawn of day
And the moon, that blinds me
And keeps me awake

You are a ceaseless string of memories
In my lucid dreams; and
The jolt of somnambulism

You are a sinking ship
That drowns me slowly
Whenever I close my eyes

You leave me wandering
Flitting on sidewalks,
Seeing through clouded eyes

You are a facade of beauty
But a whirl of sleepless nights; and
Drowsy days

You are an insomniac piece of me
And I feel you when the sky is crippling
Into fragments of oblivion

I feel you when
The ghostly darkness
Has engulfed my bones and pinched my skin.

I feel you when
I cannot feel anything
And I understand that there is presence in absence.
