Treasure Island

Insomnia


These sleepless nights I lie awake
What is real and what is fake
This sleepless slumber will not end
Hours last for days and start to blend

Tossing and turning just like my thoughts
Things from my past have me fraught
As time goes on my sanity leaves
My sight is vague my mind deceives

Memories fade into a fuzzy blur
Still waiting for a trance to occur
Why do I feel so numb
Is there a reason for this symptom

The morning sun breaks through all
The insanity, the thoughts, their downfall
Sweet sanity seeps back all at once
Goodbye my friend insomnia. Silence

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
