Can’t Sleep

Photo by cottonbro on Pexels.com

I sit in near silence

The tv on without sound

It’s gentle flickering light

Playing tricks on the mind

The hypnotic ticking of the clock

Lulls me towards a sense of peace

While the millions of thoughts

Bouncing around in my head

Hold onto other plans

A solitude I want

A loneliness I fear

At war with myself at 3 am


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – hypnotic
