Cant Sleep Poem by David Cadywold

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.
