As I Lie In A Dark Room. - Poem by Jamie Paul Gallagher

I lie down in a dark room,
thoughts running through my mind.
I cant sleep, i try.
But thoughts of the past,
and thoughts of the future
are all i can think about.
The stress is built up,
and it all comes back at one point.
When the sun is out,
and the day is eventful,
my troubles seem to fade.
But as i lay in bed,
staring up into nothing but black,
it all returns,
at the same time every night.
Sometimes i wish
that there was no such thing as darkness
and no such things as thoughts.
Because thoughts lead to dreams
dreams lead to nightmares
nightmares lead to fear
fear leads to breakdown
and breakdown leads to destruction.
Am i an insomniac?
Or am I just worried?
About life itself,
and dealing with all that comes along with it.
If you can sleep at night
without a problem on your mind,
without a thought of what youll dream about.
Then please tell me your secret
i'd love to know.
How i could get to sleep,
as i lie down in a dark room.
