Cant Sleep


I went to bed, I went to sleep
But at half past two I was awake
I dont know why, I cannot say
It seems to me that sleep escaped

I lay here in the dark
I lay here eyes shut tight
My mind was spiralling out of control
This poem I have to write

So up I got
The light switched on
Pen to paper I started to write
I hope this poems not too long

I'd like to lay back down again
Turn off the light and try again
To close my eyes and fall asleep
For a few hours try to keep.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
