Insomnia

deep-and-heavy-slumber

 

She struggles awake to stay

She loses a little more control every day

And sleeps entire days away

Only to wake once again

To falling back asleep

Morning, noon, and eve

The more she sleeps the more she dreams

Of when her world consisted of he

Now nevermore to be

She stays asleep

But in the night she lies awakes

Kept awake by every word, every mistake

An apology she cannot make

Time she cannot take

She cannot sleep

As dawn crosses the sky

Once more enchanting sleep covers her eyes

Still away in dreams she flies

Herself she tries to deny

In sleep to see him

She’ll never be the same again

To love one person more than a friend

Perhaps she will always sleep

And find rest instead

When she is dead
