what do you do to get through sleepless nights?
out from behind computer screen, I crawl
aware of the silence I'm wrapped within
the sudden darkness blinding me to all
until my eyes adjust to the dark once again

the quiet, so loud it hurts my ears
and monsters stare from shadowy places
only distraction can drive away fears
and dispel from my mind without any traces

so again, I switch computer on
and bathe my face in the blue light
these little distractions, keeping me calm
to help me survive the night
