Night creeps in, encroaching on my soul
Another sleepless evening with my mind overwrought
With what ifs and when can I’s which never seem to pan out
As a tear trickles, to mingle with the tangles in my hair.
The pillows bunched and the sheets asunder
Twisted clothes with twisted dreams
That feed into my neurosis
Adding fuel to an already restless eve.
Where are the flowers and dreams filled with laughter?
When will the peace return to sate my heart?
Let me lie beneath the streams of faded gladness
And repose as a child in fields of golden sunlight.
