I lie awake thinking While staring at my ceiling About so many things To name a few: my day Tomorrow The paint chip on The wall
Nervous pangs and tattering thoughts The impending terror of my dreams lay before me. Psychology tells physiology to shut its mouth but biology gives in: Close my eyes and count to three  
The salty liquid rolls down like a water fall, staining rosy cheeks before falling upon the black sheets. A fragile silence unbroken remains as no sound is permitted to escape the locked up lips which hide away

On sleepless nights When I lie awake I often stare Before I break. I stare at you, Oh ceiling, friend. I stare to make The nightmares end.
It's hard to listen fully To people when they say, "You need a little sleep dear; Your eyes won't be as gray". For how are they to know What sleep does to my mind, How I wake up in a cold sweat,
How am I supposed to sleep  when my brain will not shut up? How am I supposed to shut it up  when I don't even know what it is thinking? So tell me anxiety what it is that you say,
The clock reads 1:23.  I am still, bathed in the green light of the microwave.  My mind drifts from place to place but my body is stationary.    The clock reads 3:45. 
When I'm asleep I think... I create a movie in my head that keeps me asleep But sometimes the movies, my mind.....scares me It's pretty much every night....That's why I sleep through out the day time.
I should be sleeping, Smiling at sweet and happy dreams, But instead I lay here in bed, Anxiously awaiting day break. I fear closing my eyes, And wandering into my head
At night I'm the darkest sky The stars are my path The moon is my guide My mind travels To far away places Where my grass Is greener From the other side
5:35 am Here I am Searching  I know not what I'm looking for But I know I need to find something 6:17 am Here I am  Took one notification  To know what I'd hoped I'd find
I do not sleep, My mind talks through the night Keeping me up Until it becomes light. Perhaps it’s from stress, Perhaps it’s from dreams, Not the kind in one’s sleep But the kind in one’s head.
i feel you you there scarfing down two muffins at 3 am i've been you  bloodshot zombie in the white screen light i understand you and the tired words your lips can't form any more eyez bean der twoo 
Late one night, tossing and turning, I can’t sleep A lot on my mind, with no one to wail to Watching my beam of light, sleep so peacefully One thought that sticks out with an annoyance
Tick tock, goes the clock, as I'm just waiting For your mind to click, realize, and see I want you. I feel the bittersweet sting. Wish you would feel the same way about me.
even the wildest of us, craving freedom, has broken  alone, the sleepless nights pass so tediously
I fall asleep with wandering dreams The colors are so vivid; I’m bursting at the seams I’m walking on endless thoughts
Knowing that you are alright my future always looks forever so bright
I have a thing for the moon. I'm scared to go to sleep.  I think I'm scared.  I have to be scared. That's the only explanation I'm scared to sleep 
Sleepless night and a flickering light the shadow glares, from above it snares   slow tunes fill this space with nostalgia
For I once counted Daffodils in my sleep, So delicate and unique. But no more can I sleep, For the devil has a hold of me oh so deep. For I once counted Daffodils in my sleep, So delicate and unique.
On the nights I lay in bed not feeling tired at all, are the nights I begin to ponder. Pondering, Pondering, I ponder the night away, not caring that daybreak is close at hand.
That rush you dread as life crashes towards you, Barreling through with unspoken emotions. Guilt, remorse, and weariness threads a shadow, A fifty-foot tower right over you.  
Here I sit, ah this black chalice so alone, and silence embracing my every thought,every emotion.  
3:57 odd time to be a- wake. I lay slowly, adrifting away- awake. the Insomniac beat... yes it benches and bangs, an anvil god's trinkets and toys bring pain-
Sadness floats around me Hovering Always with me. Like mist, It creeps over me Settles down and suffocates me. The fog of depression hides the sight of happiness. The shadows are dark,

Numb is always my emotion I've become so bland nothing effects me anymore I only cry to know I'm still alive and because I know they're right.
Get away from me. I don't want you to visit again. Last time nearly killed me. The pain; the crying. The worthlessness.
A dark hole called home, but it's not even mine. Not living only existing, no hope, no worth, dealing with what I've been dealt. Keep it all inside, the words inside my mouth. We'll all be the same, lying in the dirt.
There's so much stress The last forty days of school With all of the reports and papers Books and projects Filling out papers Application after application All asking the same questions

Slam what you will, Slam what you may, but you must always seize the day.
Too many decisions. What decisions are going to make my life right? Thats all i am thinking about on this sleepless night. Sometimes i want to give up. Why cant life be simple? This stress makes me tremble.
