Insomnia, my nemesis

My nocturnal menace

You're no nightly rendezvous

No lovely illicit paramour

I stare wide-eyed

Helpless and hapless

Into your endless

Gaping black maw

Tossing and turning

We wrestle mightily

As I strive to reject

Your leeching embrace

Akin to a vampire

You suck all vitality

Until I am no more

Than a withered husk

Bedraggled in defeat

Glassy-eyed with fatigue

Bleakly I blearily greet

The painful dawn
