No rest at night

No rest at night

A Poem by Billy

How do you silence that without a voice?

And if it has no voice, how does it speak?

My mind, never stops


An incessant taunting

Haunts me every night

Sleep does not come easy


A strong desire

A constant fear

Many questions unanswered


No real joy

Just distracting filler

Is that any way to get by?


I fear the stress will catch up to me

Swallow me whole

And I will cease to be

I would hardly consider myself a poet, a novelist, even a writer. What you read on here, is all me. My real thoughts, my real feelings. Do keep in mind however, feelings and thoughts may change. more..
