Endlessly

I shudder knowing
night is falling,
taking over me.

I tuck my feet in ,
pull up the covers,
hunker under the sheet.

My eyes are open.
My mind is thinking —
thinking endlessly.

The stress, the nightmares,
they’re never-ending.
They’re overcoming me.

Each night I lie here
contemplating,
thinking endlessly.

Each night I struggle,
fight insomnia,
awake eternally.

  1. I love your poetry! This one I can definately relate to- it’s insomnia bottled up.
