Staring through the night

by Mark Hopwood   Nov 10, 2017


Laying in bed, staring at the ceiling,
Trying to escape what it is I am feeling,
Should I get back up and make myself a brew?
Or should I just keep laying here with nothing to do?
With a brain that just won't settle down,
And so many thoughts that are making me drown.
All these thoughts, some stay and some pass through,
As I just keep laying here with nothing to do.
There's no chance of sleep cos my mind is too awake.
I need to slap myself about and give myself a shake.
