Can’t get to sleep again,
Too much on my mind.
I’m awake,
I’m alive.
I just feel dead
Although I’m just fine.

My hands are limp
As they hang off the bed
My brain is fried
Inside my throbbing head.

I hear the voices in my head call
I wish they would just shut up.
I stare at these four walls
Once again.
Just like
Last night

Why can’t they leave me to sleep?
Leave me in a dreamland
Where everything is fine
And everything’s alright.

But they leave me,
To sing the Insomniac's lullaby
I am a total insomniac... and I cannot get to sleep for the life of me sometimes. So, I decided to try to put it into words..

Inspired by the song I Changed my Name by Sugarcult, one of my favorite bands :D

i have a horrid problem sleeping too...sometimes i won't fall asleep until 6 or 7 in the morning....so i could really relate to this

it got to the point where they put me on some pretty heavy duty medications....but the side effects ended up being worse than the lack of sleep :S so now i'm back to that feeling like my thoughts just won't turn off

*sigh*

oh well, such is life.

:blackrose: lovely poem, hunn
