Night

I fall heavily into the bed,

Like waves crash into the sea,

But suddenly I’m wide awake,

Not sure how this can be.

 

I take my pills for all my ills,

To try and calm my mind,

Yet the chance of sleep has run away,

Leaving me too far behind.

 

I try to read but it’s no good,

My mind that is, no luck,

My brain twists in so many ways,

Unlike the turgid book.

 

And so I lie and ruminate,

‘Til darkness turns to light,

The tale of a broken soul,

No way to make it right.
