Poetry: Sleep


All I want is sleep

A respite from the light

But insomnia comes at a heavy price

Drugs and pills, you need more and more

And I still wake up in the night

Is it a crime to sleep through the night?

I think it must be so

I beg in tears please let me go

Let me fall asleep again

Your screwing with my life

Because then I’m tired all day

Please let me sleep I’m only human

And I beg for a moment to close my eyes

To sleep to mornings light

And wake up feeling refreshed

But right now it’s so hard to get up

I want to sleep all day

Because at night I lie awake

God, grant me sleep

I’m begging you, 

No sleep, it ruins my days.
