Insomnia Poem

Updated on October 17, 2013

Insomnia

Mind is racing, too tired to sleep

Tried everything, even counting sheep


Turn on the TV as the channels I scan

Being up all night was not the plan


Infomercials and movies, all seen before

Battling my brain, this means war


It seems the more I try not to think

The less likely to sleep I will sink


And now I eat, but not out of hunger

Regretting the naps I skipped when younger


I look at the clock, and it only gets worse

Insomnia can be such a curse


Time goes by, but utterly slow

In just a few hours it will be time to go


Searching for something to give me rest

But I end up failing, you might have guessed


There is always tomorrow, hope not to repeat

Maybe me and the sandman will finally meet.
