Insomnia - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

This loss is the gain of life
As my mind and body
Both love to awake
In tandem, since you
Occupied that special place
Where dreams are elusive
And nerves chill the blood
And eyelids standstill
Like Crane on one leg
Patiently waiting for fish
Clock in cloak of mirage
Peace of mind in pieces
Bed is sheet of whip
Uncovering the sleep
Two twinkling stars are
Far from deep sea.

    This loss is the gain of life
    As my mind and body
    Both love to awake
    A nice idea, a lovely way to convince that even pains have a positive point.
