Barren room haiku

sleepless night—
alone but never alone
my heart's still pounding

blanketing darkness
in the empty calmness—
the wall clock’s ticking

routine blackout—
glowing light at the corner
my fluorescent watch

eyes wide awake
thru' the windowpane, the moon
keeps shining on me

power failure—
absence of light, I’m blinded
aha! room gets wider

a barren room—
no valuables and riches
I get accustomed
