Caused by paranoia
Convinced that if I fall asleep
I may never wake up
And in my state of sleeplessness
My fear only worsens
I do drift off
Panic sets in
And I’m jolted back to wakefulness
Cold sweat forming
I must stay awake
So I can see it coming
If something’s going to get me
Then I am going out fighting
Insomnoparanoia is a word I just made up. I’m going to start compiling a list of all my made up words.
Update 31/05/18: I have since written a short composition which I feel works very well for this poem.
