And here I am again completely weird
But the clock it just keeps on ticking
But not the only reason why I'm tired
And my eyes they keep on flickering

When outside all these flashing lights
The sound of cars keep whishing on by
It's no good all these sleepless nights
If I could get some blink in shut eye

I keep on telling myself sweet dreams
Though most of the time they are vivid
It's like I'm jumping in and out of scenes                             
And only leaves one restless and livid

Yeah I defiantly need some more r,e,m's
It's like this bad case of sleep depravation
I'm often asked where is it that it all stems
Though I've never been one for relaxation

I need some more rapid eye movement
If I could get some of those sweet lullaby’s
Of course that would be an improvement
To those bags that are under my eyes

Thoughts keep going round in my head
If I could give some rest to my aching bod
I've just got to start getting myself to bed
Though still trying to find the land of nod

Something wanted to write about for a while
couple of verse not to happy with might update in futre
just getting some thoughts out of my head
im sure a lot of people can relate to this 
when in my ywenties did not need as much
but so much going on at times find it hard to relax
get in to that third stage of sleep

    I like the way you've taken a simple subject such as sleep and brought it to life into a vivid story that came alive. Well done

    I love the way you write because I can totally relate to your words, to what you're going through. It's always nice to know someone else feels the way I do. Not only that, but you express these feelings and things really well. Always, Laura
