Restless soul 💤 | #Poem

My mind is always seeking peace
Yet my soul never seems to sleep
Not even a wink
It constantly speaks
To give me nothing but grief
That makes me think
When I should be fast asleep 
Else counting sheep

In Sleep

I call out to you in the darkness
All tangled in the twisted sheets
Tossing and turning trying to find you
In the still of the night I reach out for you
My fingertips drift aimless about
Nothing to hold me securely in place
A cold chill fills the room with despair
Time passes by, yet you don’t seem to care
Sleep I beg of you please don’t evade me this night
