A silent touch, a cold 
A familiar result of too 
much stress
My chest is tight, my 
knees are weak
My body is in imagined 

I loved my rest, I loved 
my sleep
A pledge 'tween me and 
my bed so deep
Now a nightmare just 
laying down
The loss renders me too 
tired to weep

Why this bother, why this 
What is it with my 
overactive brain..?
Tell me please where is 
the switch
I need to flip, or I'll go 

I could use the time to 
learn new things,
Or draw pictures of 
unicorns with wings
I shall do neither of that 
I'm sure
A song too violent and 
rough my heart still sings

Sleep come sweetly, I'm 
waiting for you
You were always there to 
pull me through
It feels like a rock is upon 
my chest
I need to unplug to 
awake anew!
