Another silent night, 

Listening to the wind and rain

Struggling to focus, 

My mind at odds

Simultaneously racing 

And befuddled

All at once

A frustrating predicament

The tea is gone

But caffeine does nothing

Too many years of dependency

Too little care to reduce

Dreaming of other worlds

Cut from whole cloth

My fingers dance

The keyboard clicking

Until the silence returns

And thoughts stop

The wind has settled for now

Only intermittent clicks of the keyboard

Stabbing at each space

Each jump

Desperate to regain control
