Insomniacs Lament.

 

Now I lay me down to sleep I hope that it will come,

too many of those sleepless nights have made me come undone.

 

I toss and turn from side to side, trying to find a way,

to reach some position in which I can snuggly stay.

 

But here they come, the agonies, along with all the cramp

I’ll try to just ignore it all and not turn on that lamp.

 

My eyes are getting heavy and my mind’s becoming numb

but then those thoughts come inching in before my sleep’s begun.

 

The tiny little worries seem to now have grown in size

as my tired brain zeros in on them and magnifies.

 

The clock it moves so slowly when I can’t just drift away

and shadows that now do appear, on my fears they’ll play.

 

If I don’t get a good sleep soon I think that I will scream

for I need to enter in that state where I can safely dream!
