A Poem for the Sleepless

dream-catcher-1896335_960_720

Her head on the pillow

Thoughts chaotic

She hoped for peace

but felt everything else

Tossing and turning

Allowing the day to replay 

and replay

Why might I be among the sleepless

Trying to resist the awakened

Silently calling for the lost heart to calm my eyes

Bring silence to my mind

I just want to be amongst the quiet

Along the course of the night

In a moment of nothing 

To share in the dark

the sweet nothing of my dreams

I withstand the fight

and wish for a peaceful sleep

Another night will be

Where I can try to succumb

Be rested and free

Another night will be

Where my dreams are mine

and my mind is no longer thee…
