Ticking toward a new day

Hey you

What are you thinking about

In the middle of the night

Lying there awake

Lost in an indescribable Restlessness

A barrage of thoughts

Rendering you sleepless

No energy to get out of bed

Not totally awake

Unable to completely relax

Watching the clock arms

Slowly turn

Inching toward dawn

Knowing about the time

You must arise

Sleep will rush in

Desperate to keep you tethered

To your bed

Releasing your mind

From the prison of thought

Transporting you

To a magical land

Sleep
