I lie awake, watching the moonbeam
burst into my room through
the window.
I permit a traffic of thoughts
to flow,
to travel on the highway in my head.
I starve myself of sleep and
worship the night.
I curse myself for breaking
too much
in the face of adversity. I discard my
name and proclaim myself an
unnamed disaster.
A war waiting to happen.
I weigh a ton, my heart has carried too
much grief,
too much pain has huddled up
in my body.
I lie awake,
concluding that I am a lost battle.
That I have worshiped pain for too long.
