Poem: Sleepless nights


#1

Sometimes it comes, these sleepless nights
without any warning it hits me
keeping me awake although I should sleep
making me tired although I should be rested
can not do anything
sleeplessness just comes sometimes
hating this tired, wasteful feeling
waiting to sleep, wanting to rest
but the mind is running on the overload
keeping me awake through the night
when others are sleeping I am still up
wanting to sleep, but can not
this terrible feeling driving me mad
during this sleepless night of mine it does.
