Delirium made flesh_

A fool man lives in my head
He comes out in the hour of darkness
Making an imperceptible appearance
In my night’s first dream

The fool man restrains my brain
From dozing off
He gives way to sleeplessness
The whole night through

The fool man is evil
He wants to suffocate me
He presses my legs and shoulders
He lifts me up from my bed
Takes me on a trip while I scream unheard
Knowing that he is in my head
The fool man throws me on the ground
Each night
He throws me on the ground

I wake up dumbfounded
Each night
I know the fool man is transparent
I know he is in my head
But he is stronger than I am
He is taking my sleep away
