not this scent of sweat,
it’s not from lack of light
but in the subtle weight

    Actively writing in the early hours one is privileged with quietness befitting a prolific writer!


  6. I’m most often awake at 3 am and since we’re more than likely in the same time zone, it is quite odd to think of that synchronicity. You have captured the sense of isolation and irregularity of the insomniac very well.
