Insomnia

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it my scars?
Is it the stars?
Is it my wars?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the moon?
Is it the swoon?
Is it the bloom?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the stray?
Is it the ash tray?
Is it the wild spray?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the voice in my head?
Is it the clutches of the dead?
Is it the swirling dread?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it you?
Is it the mild dew?
Is it the fearful crew?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the silence?
Is it the never ending violence?
Is it the universe imbalance?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the spear?
Is it the fear?
Is it the crowd's cheer?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it love?
Is it the painful shove?
Is it the witches glove?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the fall?
Is it the long haul?
Is it the near crawl?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the ashes?
Is it the muddy splashes?
Is it the arm gashes?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the demon?
Is it the dreadful summon?
Is it the handful seaman?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the rose?
Is it her pose?
Is it his prose?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the sheets?
Is it the saree pleats?
Is it the unsafe streets?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the growl?
Is it the window prowl?
Is it the dead owl?

What is it I wonder, that keeps me awake at night?

Is it the pace?
Is it the backstabbing race?
Is it the lover's embrace?
