"  To sleep "

Clock it ticks a deathly sound
Night with darkenss all around
I sit inside my vacant mind
Passing thoughts of other time
Sleep it avades me now
Never do I feel allowed
To close my eyes in silence fair
Instead my eyes in frozen stare
Tiredness creeps upon my lone
My life inside my holy stone
To close my mind is what I wish
To get to sleep with not a glitch
Awake in a fresh new morn
Without the feeling of withdrawn
No help no pill no things to cure
The lack of sleep the nights allure
So if in dark you are awake
Think of me and light it take
Dream of wonderful things to share
Awake in morn without a care

It's interesting, though - the thoughts that go through your mind as you lie there and stare at the ceiling, isn't it... nice poem, Whiskey...

Whiskey, it's neat how you've expressed the darkened frustration of insomnia so accurately here!
