Insomnia

Written by: Nicholas Bello

I can’t sleep and it’s because of you when did I become so dependent?
I think about everything
And how it led to the present
I can’t come up with it-the answer is not my solution
I close my eyes and drift in and out of consciousness
sleep my resolution.
Patience my virtue
I let it be but I still can’t sleep
And the only reason why is because of you.
I feel like I'm free falling
and awake in terror
anger sets in and it’s your name I’m calling.
Something always stops me
I get a hold of myself and try again
but in the end sleep is beat.
