Insomnia, The cause of my pain

I thought it was nothing.
"Just not tired" I'd tell myself.
But truth be told, 
I'm tired all the time.
I just cannot sleep. 
I try and try.
Still can't sleep.
"Take the pill" i tell myself.
Still i  can't sleep.
So sleep deprived,
that i become sick, not just mentally but physically.
Just wish i could sleep.
and get over this.
