My Lament

You sneak into my room.

I wouldn’t have invited you, and I think you know it.

Oblivious, I continue my evening.

Until that last moment before I slip into unconsciousness…


There I lay, slowly drifting into darkness, on the precipice of letting go…

And then I hear you. Softly, whispering in my ear… Just as quickly, you are gone.

I resolve not to move.

I’m sure you’re there, waiting for me.

Yet I try to sleep, knowing sleep will bring no safety.


I hear you again.

Snap. I’m up. The darkness fades, and of course you’re nowhere.

Oh how I despise you.

The inevitable choice, where neither option brings relief.

I despair and lay down once more.


AH-HA! There I hear you again!


Slap! I cannot take it anymore!

I thrust my open palm against your small evil body.

Death. Success. Take that mosquito.
