2:08 by the clock

it's strange at night when you can't sleep.
you search the net for something to put you at ease.
key board is not quiet visible by the glowing computer screen light.
you sit in the dark waiting for the sand man to toss some in your eyes
a flash of white off to your left, is something there
no not a thing; but still the chills run up your spine.
a haunting noise from another room and, please let it be the cat.
you search for sleep a while longer
until the fur touched your naked feet,
oh god let that be the cat
you are wide awake but head back to be
a place to hide under the covers,
a place secure from the ghost of the night
and then it hits you, with mocked delight.
you lay in bed and search the dark for any sign of the fright.
but alas it will not wait.
you have to go pee, and that the end of that

if you're writing over your readers head - tum etiam, ut graece scribens --- the secret of success changes;the truth of failure remains constant; if you try to please everyone you will fail.
