Tonight I just can not sleep

Typically I sleep well my nights, but not tonight, something is keeping me up, it is 2:20 am and I am still awake, I might have slept few hours.

Sleepless Night

It is 2:00 am and still no sleep
thoughts keep running through my mind
nonsense and more nonsense
trying to rest on my bed but still no sleep
why? In all other nights I slept well
don’t know my life’s deep mysteries
soon it is 5:00 am and still awake
ready for breakfast and coffee
surely knowing how this day goes
nonsense and more nonsense.

Those nights tend to suck, but I do find that it’s very peaceful falling asleep in the morning sunlight. You?

I also could’nt sleep. I’ve been up most of the night. My mind is so busy. I’m thinking of moving to the sea in order for me to be nearer to my father and brother. Chances are my sister would come with. I’ve been up since 2am cause I could not sleep. Walking up and down in my room. Thinking of nonsense like you said. It is now exactly 5am

I don’t fight it anymore. If it goes for days with absolutely no sleep then that’s more serious, but a few nights with little sleep is okay. I don’t like taking anything, but every once in awhile if I feel agitated I’ll take ZQuil because it slows my thoughts and makes me feel heavy so that eventually I fall asleep. It only lasts 4-5 hours, but it’s something.
