Too much of everything

For an insomniac at 3 AM

Every tick of the clock

Every house creak and crack

Amplified one hundred times over

Bizarre thoughts reigned supreme

Imaginary shadow puppets

From cast light reflections

Led parade marches through

Silhouetted towns and villages

One half of the world gone mad

While the other half–slept

With one eye opened

    While there are plenty of things to keep me awake nights, my issue is with my Bi-pap mask. The blasted thing leaks, wakes me up, at lest six times per night. Replacement parts, available from the medical supply house, are not readily available. It’s always a two-week for anything. Meanwhile, I’ve contemplated taking the mask off, and risking sleep apnea, just to get some uninterrupted sleep.
