when the earth ticks into darkness
many things steal sleep from my eyes

i.
i dig myself into the bed
& get stuck between my sentiments

ii.
tears toss out of my eyes bank
& burn the pillow/ many nights
i found comfort in those ashes

iii.
depression braids the hairs on my skin into pain

iv.
i feed my memories with butterflies from my belly
to rekindle a piece of happiness in me

v.
i lay my body
mutely,
teaching it,
how to smile as bright as the sun

&
listening to how silent the world would be without me

vi.
etc./ the night knows how infinite this poem is;
of how every night my eyes thirsts for sleep
