A Night, Metaphorically Speaking

There is no rest tonight
For I sleep with shame
and dream of disillusion
Tossing and turning with waves of worry
I restlessly resist my reality
With closed eyes I block out
The memories that shine through
The windows of my mind
Yet,
The stark ticks of life’s clock remind me
That the dark cannot hide me
forever
and that soon I must wake up
