Just Something New


It's late yet I can't seem to go to sleep tonight

I can hear plenty of sounds

the wind blowing , croaking frogs and cars going faster than the speed of light.


All I do is toss and turn alone in my bed

staring deep into my dark room

as thoughts flood my head.


Still I toss and turn until I end up on my back

half tangled under sheets and blankets

as my room floods to black.


Maybe sooner or later I'll just close my eyes

patiently waiting for another day

and a morning filled with a perfect sunrise.

I like this a lot. It really resonates with me a lot right now because I feel so stuck I guess. I also have a lot of trouble sleeping. Great poem :)
