Sleep v/s Sleeplessness

Entry for Saarang Poetry Writing 2010.

Sleep.
Magical sojourn.
Eyelids take over
Engulfing every intimate sense.
Heaven.

Sleeplessness.
Invincible irritation.
Motionless blank eyes
Blocking even common sense.
Hell.

Sleep.
Unlimited dreams.
The soul surrenders
To the ultimate experience.
Paradise.

Sleeplessness.
Unfulfilled dreams.
The body becomes
A slave of agony.
Graveyard.

Sleep.
A boon.
The mind plunges
Into eternal peace, happiness.
Love.

Sleeplessness.
A bane.
Sitting upright
Searching for a life.
Insomnia.
