Bright Young Minds [31/365] by DaphneNg

I shut my eyes in hope of sleep
Gently closed, or tightly clenched
Despite the method I still see

FLASH-

-ING

LIGHTS

Bright and vibrant and so distracting
“No rest for the wicked,”
They seem to titter
The flashes almost acting as letters,
Words and phrases meant to tell a story
Or prevent restful slumber
Even now I see naught but

Lights lights lights

Blinding and desperate for attention
