Sleepless in Athens

The time is well past midnight and sleep is not on my side.Everyone seems to be lost in their own dreamland while I'm fidgeting in my chair.Tom Waitts' voice,deep and melancholic,is my companion for this long night.I like my town with a little drop of poison.So alcohol is in order.A glass of pure vodka is the best medicine on a night like this.It's been a hell couple of days althought the week started off with a lot of potential.The air of something new lingered in the air elating me with every breath I took.But all good things come to an end and I knew this new found joy wasn't gonna last.And it didn't.But that is life afterall.Good,bad and everything in between.Lately it seems to me that it is only bad as I am struggling to deal with all the changes in my life.I'm going through changes,sings Ozzy through the stereo and sleep is nowhere to be found.I can't even bother to lose some of my remaining brain cells watching tv.I discover The Cure for my boredom.Whenever I'm alone with you,you make me feel like I am whole again.I think of the days to come.A twist in my stomach.They are full of departures and no arrivals.Is it just me or is my world getting smaller by the day?I dread the loneliness that is to come.But how do you kill this loneliness?I can't find a partener in this crime.a glimpse at the clock is enough to tell me that the night has moved on.It's getting late but still no mood for sleep.My dreams are always so promising and I never wanna wake up to reality.But dawn awaits.And who knows?Maybe today is the day.Over and out.
