Sleep

Sleep

A Poem by Courtney Rose

Nights are always the worse

Alone with only your thoughts to keep you occupied
Only your thoughts to deprive you of sleep
Lashing at you like a merciless whip

Finally sleep takes over
but not a deep peaceful sleep
A hollow empty sleep
Where dreams are hidden

When morning comes you wake up feeling spent
knowing this vicious cycle will begin again

So true. Nighttime is the worst time for me. Or, at least, the time of night where I'm going to bed. All of my thoughts converge at once and it makes it very hard to sleep. Wonderfully written.
