I curl into bed dreaming of sleep
Sleep evades, making me wanting to weep.
I hear the sounds of the night as it slumbers
In the darkness, I glimpse the sky's wonders.
Like salad in a bowl, I toss and turn
Setting the oil lamps ready to burn.
Unwanted thoughts begin to agonize
Seeping into consciousness to demonize.
Breath stifled under blanket of claustrophobia
A cathartic struggle with insomnia.
I yawn loudly as I watch first streaks of dawn
As darkness dies and a new day is born.
Wired mind resets the body clock
Antsy key to be wound, to unlock.
