A Chasm In Time

Updated on April 8, 2020


Life has it's ups and downs. There are times when one may find it hard to move at the fast pace of the surrounding world. The soul needs to heal, and desperately seeks a break. Nights turn longer, and you realize that time, for you, has stopped! Insomnia can be a curse.

A Chasm In Time

Sleepless, as the night falls,
and while silence fills the air.
The dimness holds peace for all,
though, vacantly I stare,
into the abyss of my thoughts so deep,
tough to decode.
Some colours in my dreams I seek,
with some blessings bestowed.
Emotions get heavy and overtly surreal,
Desperate in despair,
with failing efforts to conceal.
Melodies come to the rescue,
to soothe and console
the wretched voices that speak inside,
and hence rejuvenates the soul.
Yet, sleepless, as time goes on,
and blankly I stare,
In the chasm in time that lies ahead,
Wondering if that's fair.

        I agree with you, Kyler. It's a struggle and a curse at the same time. I am happy to know that you liked it. It's my personal favourite. :) Thank you!

        For a long time I struggled with insomnia, I'd stay up for days to the point of blaring headaches and hallucinations. The pain of it is maddening, and not knowing when it will end and you can finally close your eyes even more so.

        You captured the struggle, not only astutely, but beautifully as well!

        Life and its challenges are a never-ending tale.

        I for one have had many sleepless nights, mind never switches off, eventually falling asleep towards the morning parts or continue through the next day until I tire out. Music is always my go to, I find it very meditational and soothing.
