I can't sleep lately.
I worry too much.
I cry so hard I give myself ear aches and head aches.
And then I want to go to sleep even more.
But I can't.
The pain won't go away.
The morning rays shine through my window,
Somehow I am still alive.
Somehow I survived the night.
I get up and live my life,
But when I lay my head back down again sleep won't come.
I know that eventually exhaustion will claim me,
And I'll sink into a dreamless sleep.
Until I hear the words to end this, my insomnia,
I will lie awake. Here.
