Restless and fitful

The nights pass

Dread lurking

Through cobwebs

And dancing

On my belly

Violins screeching

As mosquitoes swarm

In droves driven

By the smell of blood

Sluggishly pumping



From one vein

To the next

As if looking for life

Hide and seek

Without the peek-a-boo

An “out of order” sign

Tattooed onto my heart

And a “Go Away” and

“Turn back now” sign

Staked just before

The entrance to my brain
