WIRED

Sleep evades me
although my body screams
for the rest it deserves.
My mind won’t quit and it’s
for sure these thoughts will
haunt and taunt me. No drug
induced awakening, it is just
taking me time to unwind.
My pulse is quickening,
it’s sickening. Noxious nerves
and anxious angst are to thank.
Sure, I’m tired, but I’m wired.
I could use some deep sleep.
