My Sleepless Nights - Poem by Fareez Nasir

The moon accompanies me every night
Witnessing my hours of struggling
To get some sleep and shut my mind from you
But it has never been easy forgetting

I'm trying to forget you and move on
That's what everyone advises me to do
It's for my best but my mind will never rest
Like trying to remember someone I never knew

So I lay in bed least expecting to sleep
A mind so confused I was never at ease
What is it that I'm trying to achieve?
Am I forgetting you or playing back memories?
