Psychotic Insomniac

The moon rises Through the darkness Stars appear Twinkling I’m the vastness I close my eyes Shutting them out I lay down My head On a pillow of horror It never lets me rest My thoughts Keep me awake Jolting means I start to drift Away My mind seems to be warning me Of nightmares But really That’s what I’m trying To escape I can’t leave But I know I very well can’t stay Or these thoughts and memories Will consume me And my sanity Midnight comes With no sound Except for the screaming in my head Nobody is awake To save me From this Finally my thoughts recede Giving me Seconds Of mercy Tears Dry on me As I fall Asleep
