midnight

merciless clock keeps ticking
thoughts flow, reflect, deflect
heart pumps, faster, louder
echoes and resounds in silence
breath, shallow, quick, monstrous
whirling, swirling wind in the dark
eyes refuse to close and stay shut
staring, blind, frantic, dry
as silhouettes of ghostly furniture
dance a savage reel
thumping, screeching, scraping
around a fire nowhere to be seen
memories, plans, fears, old fiends
flood, swamp, close over like murky water
voices are loud, shrill, insatiable,
and the cruel clock keeps ticking…
