Insomnia

The ticking of the clock,

Like the beating of my heart

Remains consistent through this fight.

Hush, go to sleep now,

Please tell me a story

Just to get me through the night.

Close my eyes and shield me,

From the raging world outside

Thatwe are faced with in the day.

While these hours are precious,

Inspiration in the dead of night

That in the morning has faded away.

In the darkness, thoughts intensify,

And at once we come to our senses

Just for a moment, it's all so clear.

Silence, calm yourself down,

The truth is revealed after hours

And it is ourselves that we fear.
