Every night,
Down this road I walk,
Clairvoyant in perpetual insomnia,
Pencil etches of truth and fantasy,
Criss-cross my vision,
Fourteen cups of 5am coffee,
Still no closer to reality,

A solitary car passes me,
Like consciousness,
Through my net like mind,
It escapes me,
Streetlights of piteous constraint,
Revealing nothing more,
Yet revel in what they supposedly divulge,
Like pretentious picture frames

Puddles coat the road in truth,
Like any other mirror,
Mocking,
Criticizing the insecure,
Haunting the Vain,
Yet my only friend,
Hides the false and only speaks fact

The joy of truth,
Revealed from a fragile mind,
Solitude
There is something so creative about being up at 5am, when the world makes total sense from a different perspective

Agreed. I find that morning is enigmatically hypnotic and quietly energetic. Very well done, I find that I can easily relate to the poem. It's very good.
