Sleep Easy

Written by: Michelle McDermin

I wish I didn't wake up in pain every morning
I wish I didn't have a cloud over my head every night
I wish that my mind wasn't flooded with thoughts 
as I try to sleep
It's no longer something refreshing
but something I dread
I run to that when I can bare no more
As each night passes it gets worse and worse
They get colder and lonelier
I'm barely living
if at all
