Night Shivers -- Poetry 2009

Middle of the night shivers wake
me out of fathomless dream depths…
a one-of-a-kind chill – deep prolonged.
The private world of dreams,
a sanctuary from reality, invaded
by shuddering muscle spasms.
Awake, I wait willing my body
to relax despite clocks glow of 3am.
Somewhere between wakefulness
and full sleep, I float through a log
jam of thought – day dreaming –
sleeping a life away when awake.
Not really alive nor certifiably dead
but detached between realities.
