sleepy in east texas

the hotel
remained silent
throughout the
evening as i
paced the halls
a restless spirit
seeking the
shallow warmth
of the living
rattling chains
and bemoaning
insomniac desires

my mind refuses
to let go
a manic misery
tinting the
hallowed halls
of a holiday inn
at the edge
of nowhere
searching the
silence for a
sign of something
to alleviate
this hollow ache
