Based on what I experienced a couple of years back when I was suffering from severe insomnia, so I wrote this poem on how it felt and what I was going through.

Another sleepless night for me
As nightmares constantly haunt
The child inside screams insanely
When these visions come to flaunt

Disturbing images I cannot fight
As I sweat during the coming night
Gathering up the hallowing fright
And dreams escape into the light

Dread seeps on through the cracks
As drowsiness comes as I awake
Another daunting devil stems into
When everything feels like mistakes

Then pain courses within the heart
As I wake up pacing to the start
Numbly do I stand awaiting sharp
Demons tearing never to depart

Slowly I always dread the morning
As weakness comes upon my mind
With gazes from night give warning
Lazy do I awake forgetting the time
