Darkness Visible

The night never ends at twelve. It continues to thirteen, fourteen, fifteen . . . in my mind. I hate the night because I can't sleep. I loathe the day because it can only march towards the night.

In these haunted hours the black beast rides my mind, and there is nothing I can do to tame it.

tick, tick, tick . . .
counting stars
in the skylight
