Short story: <i>Insomnia</i>

On a knife-edge.

Can't eat,

Can't sleep,

Recurrence like the disc's jammed,

Eyelid flutters,

Finger twitches,

Mouth dries,

Lips crack.

Sedatives,

Painkillers,

Constant gestation in an exhausted mind.

This is the result of a fifteen minute writing exercise. The only constrictions were the time limit and five randomly selected words from the dictionary. Today the words were: knife-edge, sedative, recurrence, painkiller, and gestation.
