Prompt 104: Insomnia

Felicity of Confessions of a Philosophy Junkie brings us this week's prompt, insomnia. Thanks, Felicity, for this poem:

Even in the sleeplessness
of fever and delirium
and nightmares
of long dark corridors
With doors that won't open
when she is chased by monsters
and giant chameleons
who lunge at her -
She comes back;
she always comes back to you.

And she won't remember it
When she wakes up
But she's spent all her sleep
Telling you
About things
You no longer have time
To listen to.
