4.:48am.. I’ll Take A Dose Of Sleep Please

insomnia poem

Tossing turning squirming in my sheets
Or more like fighting with my sheets
A power struggle
A resistance 
A resistance to sleep

Eyes burning head pounding
Blind writing vision blurred 
Inhale deeply and slowly 
Now exhale till there’s nothing left
I’m trying everything to get my mind to shut down
Eyes closed pretend sleeping that’s my rest 

Go to sleep I know your tired
My mind is at peace I keep repeating
What drugs can I take to make this stop 
I just want to sleep maybe a shot
1 2 3 4 that’s the hours passing by
That’s sleep gone forever never to be seen again. Bye.
