Can’t Sleep…

I wish that sleep could really be so easy

Lay down my head and let the dreams take me

But it’s not like that

Never has been, never will

Because my mind has no intention

Ever to be still

Even at the closest it ever comes to rest

It’s still fidgety at best

There’s an itch it needs to scratch

A fleeting thought it’s trying to catch

That it missed when it first flew past

But I need this mental activity to cease

For my mind to give me peace

Switch off for the night, or just an hour or two

Bring me the emptiness I desperately pursue

Let me sink into the abyss

The silent void

Such bliss
