Sleepless...

Asleep I cannot stay,

Restless I am today.

My eyes are tired; I might just break,

Something is keeping me awake.

I cannot sleep for very long,

My dreams are rapid and very strong.

Sometimes they’re chilling, what can I do?

Are these the dreams that will come true?

They are the nightmares that I do fear,

They stand so vividly and very clear.

I am so worried; I am a mess,

“Are you okay?” my answer’s ‘yes’.

Sometimes I dream of your allure,

A constant battle that I endure.

But other times the dreams are more,

Terrifying and obscure.

A heavy feeling right in my gut,

And so my eyes cannot keep shut.
