Coffee Head Blog Header
This is Wordbrew. So strap in. If you think you're too short to ride this ride...fuck it, ride it anyway. Cause if you like coffee, beer, the written word, technology, anime, the fucking cosmos, superpowers and ice cream, then this is the site for you. I'm a writer and web designer as well as a bunch of other shenanigans, and this is my highly caffeinated brain dump. Enjoy.

Dripping Insomnia

By Christopher Shiner

 

The minutes drip down

Off my clock

And collect under my bed

Like rain water

 

My eyes roll over

To scan again

Throwing their intangible

Ocular hands

Under the rivulets

Of the flowing temporal stream

 

Straining to collect the Uncontrollable

And hold it hostage

If only for an hour or two

Tossing

Turning

Fidgeting

Fighting

The river races towards 6:45 a.m.

 

My eyes try to shut in vain

 

4 a.m. plunges off the clock radio

Rushing to swim with his friends

 

Futility prances around me

Like a drunken court jester

Pointing

And laughing

Pointing

And laughing

 

But wait!

Oh yesssss…

Darkness begins to thicken

And cradle my bloodshot brain

Soothing

Sweetening

Calming

Consoling

Containing the remaining hours

In a dam built of slumbering bliss

 

BLARE BLARE BLARE BLARE

Feeling

Fumbling

Reaching

Raging

SMACK!

 

Snooze alarm.

Five more minutes…
