Insomnia I've been up all night,
And for me there is no sleep in sight.
Insomnia.. I haven't had in ages,
I guess it comes and goes in stages.

Something must be on my mind,
A problem of the complicated kind,
That my brain is trying to sort through,
What it's chewing on, I haven't a clue.

So I sit here, staring, counting sheep,
Just wanting to get some god damn sleep!
But all night, every time I've tried,
Sleep is denied, sleep is denied..

Blend another amazing writing. Sleep for me is rare too.

I try to sleep, maybe 5 or 6hours. Up every hour or two for a minute. Lack of sleep really amps up my anxiety problems the next day. My life is good, no real worries. But my monkey brain keeps on spinning. Great poem, this I truly understand.

I'd give up all my possessions for a month of solid 8 hrs of sleep each nite. I'm lucky to get more than 6, usually 4 or 5. No matter how big the bags under my eyes, I become conscious with a burst of thought swirling around instantly.

It's pathology, I have no doubt. Something is not quite right upstairs. Be glad you don't have this all the time.
