Curled up in bed

Under the covers

Sleep out of reach

Consciousness hovers

Copious thoughts

Linger inside

Bewildering, confusing

Attempt to misguide

Cannot relax

Unable to drain

The numerous thoughts

Inside my brain

Voices becry

Unfounded worries

Doubts swirl

Like snow flurries

Tired and torn

Focus illusive

Troubles become

Extremely abusive

Sweat secretes

Heartbeat chaotic

Inhale, exhale

Numbing narcotic

Calm the storm

Clean the slate

Off to sleep

Where nightmares await
