Day 261: sleep debt

i havent had a dream in what seems like weeks
my nights are full of struggle to stay awake
struggle not to fall into darkness
i spend my day time batting my eyes at the horizon
fighting dumbbell eyelids
i am tired
in every way possible
my bones are brittle
my skin is scraping itself to breathe
the nights are taunting me for regret of not sleeping
and my poetry is obviously suffering
in the process
