SleeplessnessMature

Sounds of night pierce your ears

Every…tap…clink…whisper…

Thoughts swirl about in your head

This…is…important…isn’t…it…

Stories carve their worlds in your mind

This…seems…likely…doesn’t…it…

Worry splashes your lungs with its powerful rage

Can’t…breathe…sinking…deeper…deeper…

Images of those around you flicker in your lens

Won’t…they…just…leave…me…the…hell…alone…

The clock ticks again as you check the time

Damn…it…not…this…again…

You beg your brain for some kind of solace

Please…just…let…me…dissolve…into…bliss…

Who knows what lies ahead for you

The…world…is…dark…in…the…light…

The End
