Sleepless Night

Written by: M. E. Hathcock

lay your head close your eyes,
time for your soul to unwind,
but thousands of thoughts roll through 
your mind,
will sleep be able to come tonight or will it 
allude me like the stars in the daylight,
is it my own selfishness or the worry for 
my loved ones that leaves me with unrest
it's the deepest darkest feelings locked 
away inside this chest,
no skeleton key can pick this lock because 
it has only one way in one way out,
my biggest fear is that it will never get out
