For That Matter

 Oh! I sleep  during the day.
Calls, duties take a
back step.  One of
deep slumber.

Oh! but for the night
dreams gnaw and sting 
present both pleasant
and terrible.

Those affable
relate to my childhood
where  my mother dominates
school and university glide past

The other places me
in a state, reminiscing
the hardships, loss

recalls the nightmares
anguish, fraudulence
I endured, making me half dead,
currently half asleep,

A kind of insomnia sets in
Unable to forgive
and forget, I move on
falling short of virtuosity

Revenge, I do not attempt.  
 as I could never be vicious,
That being the scenario  
  I turn vigilant the whole night.
