"Our wars are fuelled by a lifestyle, baby
It's time to change it,
To turn."

This darkness
Presses in around me.
This numbing black
Envelops me and smothers me
With fear.
This obscurity
Numbs my brain.
The claustrophobia of
Insomnia deadens my limbs
And quickens my
It numbs my thoughts
But not my fears.

I suffer from insomnia and a lot of my poetry stems from my 3-in-the-morning thoughts.
