Insomaniac

My head hits the pillow
But sleep won't come
A deeper darkness descends
As memories of past sins
Come flooding back
Faces haunt my every turn
I light the fire, their bodies burn
Rivers of blood
From my sea of rage
All noted down 
On the policeman's page
Now I'm here in their filthy cell
Deprived of sleep 
By my personal hell
I rested much easier
Before they made me find Jesus

    Jesus brings us to the light and we have to confess and he is faithful to forgive us of all unrightousness and we have to forgive ourselves..Loved the writing. Sara:)
