Sleep, or lack there of, and the clarity of night

I think this is just about perfect.

I just wish it was me. Work has sunk my insomnia, and, when it surfaces these days, all it brings with it is a kind of mad panic. But I remember the quiet clarity of night. I remember the stars and the thoughts between them in the dark. Sleep, and that dull hunger for it, takes away so much.

Oddly enough this is a panel topic at Consock 06.
