My Mind is Racing

My Mind is Racing

A Poem by Desiree S.

I wrote this piece because sometimes I lay awake at night and it hard to fall asleep. Writing it, made me let it out.


My mind is racing,

I think about everything in my life.

From the present to the past,

From the past to the future

I am engaged with mostly memories, sometimes wishes, other times just randomness.

My mind seems to never shut off,

I lie in bed,

And I don’t know exactly, what I’m thinking.

The day has ended, but my thoughts have not stopped.

Am I searching for something?

Something lost in time?

I can’t shake this feeling

What is it that I miss so much, to lose sleep over?

I’m not sure,

but I can’t dwell on it no longer.

I close my eyes, hoping to recover by tomorrow.

I liked the fact that this one didn't rhyme, it added to the sense of confusion and nonconformity of the situation. It's a feeling a lot of people can relate to, I'm sure, I know I can.
