Night terrors

Why can’t I sleep, when will this end, this up all nights, becoming a trend, I can’t switch off, my head is full, my lights are out, my room is dull, there’s not much noise, my comfy bed, these nasty voices, inside my head, they never shut up, they never stop talking, if feel like I’m watched, there’s somebody stalking, where can it be, what was just said, I would be better, not living just dead, please make it stop, it’s making me ill, I’ve been taking my little pill, why doesn’t it work, I’m worn out for sure, my doctor was trusted, to give me the cure, is this the way it’s got be, will I never ever be free, one things for sure, one thing that’s real, this wasn’t really part of the deal, I just want to sleep, I want to switch off, why am I scared, why am I soft, night time terrors, and demons and voices, awake or asleep, surely I have the choices, the only thing I’m starting to see, is that these same horrors keep haunting me.
