Stay Awake, or Writing a Poem About Not Sleeping at 3AM, Which Contributes to the Problem I Suppose

FREE WRITING

Smoke-wreathed mornings and
black-ichor nights:
bags like sideways moons
under your eyes
and the feeling of drowning
in your own blood.

like tally marks.
Stuffy nights and
freezing days,
a heartbeat under the bed,
a heartbeat scared that if
it slows it might stop---
if your heart drums through
the night and no one's around to hear it,
what's to say it's not there? ...

FREE WRITING

There are a few interesting things or gems, though, out of the junk and bad poems. So here are a few of these. Please don't steal them; even if I'm not using the idea or line right now, I might in the future, you know?

They say "you're not alone", but my imaginary friends...

From Sick Days Spent Watching Dog-Walkers Outside the Window

FREE WRITING

    Sometimes all you can do is sketch forgotten faces in the morning light. Everything is perfect; the technique, shading, proportions--- and yet something doesn't feel right. There's no life, no soul. In a fit of anger, you begin furiously erasing, accidentally ripping a hole into the paper. You spent hours on those drawings, but you don't regret it.
    Sometimes all you can do is listen to desperate music at three in the morning. You sit in...
