I Can’t Sleep

Posted on October 4, 2013


I can’t sleep.

Can you? Or are your thoughts

Buzzing like an angry nest,

Just like mine do?


What troubles your peace of mind?

Love, life, friends, bills,

Or all of the above?

Does your heart ache

With the many ills

That all put together might

Make your back break?


I’ll tell you what troubles me.

It is all the loneliness, sadness

And uncertainty

That this life brings. Maybe your

Problems aren’t as complex.

Maybe your life isn’t such a mess.

All I know is,

I can’t sleep.
