Three O’clock

Three o’clock
the dog wants out
or maybe I’m too late

My sugar’s low
or don’t I know
kicked in Somogyi’s state

The not quite dawn
phenomenon
already taking place

It never ends
I cannot win
this glucose-insulin race

Shadows run
the cat thinks fun
tearing corners in his wake

Two hours left
to get some rest
I really need a break…

Dreamland Lies

Dreamland Lies

Nightmares calling
from behind my eyes
see darkness falling
on broken skies.

Starved of rest,
I improvise
the truths of life
my mind denies.

Frustration builds
as my heart tries
to release its fear
of Dreamland’s lies.

Sleep will come,
I would surmise,
in submission to
deprivation’s guise

with stillness and
the silent highs
of surrendered will
and it’s muffled cries –

but nightmares calling
from behind my eyes
see darkness falling
on broken skies…
