Insomnia In Hell

Rating: 5.0
Drip...
Drip...
Drip...
It was that infernal dripping again!

The slow and steady
Leaching of souls
Seeping through the walls! !

Drip...
Drip...
Drip...

One more soul...
Big deal! !
He had stopped counting
Many years before...

He could have been
Anything he had wanted!
Could have been with
Anyone he had chosen!
Could have been
Anywhere he wished...

But instead...
He was here...
Guarding the gates of Hell
With the beast
Who many years before
Had ripped his heart out
And fed it back to him
Morsel...
By tender morsel...

Insomnia...
Can be Hell! !

Dee, Sleeping is a slice of Heaven, some say, a slice of death. BUT, insomnia is a slice of HELL, exactly as you said! B.V.A.
