Insomnia - Poem by D.L. Aceves

I try and try, but I can't go to sleep.
Night after night I'm just lying awake,
Stuck listening to some loud kitten's weep,
Or to that tired breathing sound all cars make.
My body is beat, but my mind is not.
No one else is up to help me lie down.
If there was a cure I'd give it a shot,
And finally rest in this restless town.
