Darkness swirls around my head,
as I lie shaking in my bed.
Too scared to sleep, lest I die
Exhaustion beckons as the night flies by
The dreams have come, the panic too
running from things, on a floor of glue
terror unseen, so scared I’ll lose
My only solace lies in booze
Sleep deprivation, do others see ?
I stay awake till fatigue can take me
The days are long, a dream-like hell
I long for night, but dread it as well
