The Edge of Silence

picture source:

I’m so tired but cannot sleep,
motionless, thoughts float to the surface
disturbing the mirrored reflections
with ripples (of fear?)

I’m so tired, it’s time to sleep,
fall over the edge of silence,
into the absence of light to be
in a place my mind cannot rule.


  1. Those moments when your mind won't rest and those where you are lost to the dream...

  2. I have experienced this several times this week. Catching up today.

  3. hello shadow its dennis the vizsla dog hay hmm i wunder if the edge of silence is ennyware neer the edge of seventeen dada sez baysd on wot he nos of seventeen yeer old hyoomans he dowts it!!! ok bye

  4. Ain't sleeplessness a bitch Shadow? I rarely sleep more than 2-3 hours at a stretch but it's physical pain that wakes me and desire once it's abated that keeps me up.

    I would hate to hate the night.
