Here I lay
Wide awake
And I ask
Is this fate

1 sheep, 2 sheep
I count all night
Wanting to go to sleep
And be tucked in tight

but i toss and turn
with a racing mind
and i cant stop these thoughts
they're all intertwined

so here i lay
with insomnia as a friend
but i just want to sleep
So will this ever end

    Insomnia is something that many people battle myself included. (Something I tried recently and works for me is listening to audio books on my phone with my earphones plugged in) Hope you are able to get to sleep soon. Milly x

    Insomnia is a pest. But I love this poem. The rhythm and the easy words. Effortless read.
    One day soon, sleep will come easily. So keep fighting!
