Sleep evades me still and I don’t know why

I meditate, repeat mantras, I try to silence my mind

How does a body and mind continue to function without the rest it requires

How can I go days with no sleep, be tired but still not sleep when it’s bedtime

It makes no sense, at times it completely baffles me

Is it the physical pain and worry constantly attacking me?

I spend hours resisting, fake sleeping eyes shut tight

1 hour turns to three, before I know it it’s no longer night

Three hours and counting, please not tonight

I’m so tired, let’s start the process again.. goodnight
