"I should go to sleep,
I'm tired and wide-awake
with thoughts racing through me peddling and spinning with no breaks.
I think I need a break
before I dive in a lake
that's deep in my mind.
I'm inclined to search and never find
when I'm blind,
seeking clarity in my thoughts,
apparently I exhort
a kind of melancholy state when its late.
Insomnias Date
I'm struggling to shut off,
thoughts running amuck,
Is what I tell myself.
I hope my brain will listen and surround me in a wealth of dreams
so I redeem a token of self, conscious eyes on the shelf,
disguising psyche to melt.
Impel a monodrama

Maybe ill be calmer in the morning,
dispel and harbor in the same breath.
Unless in dreaming an inane quest forces me to wake up In the same mess."
