Sleeping Beauty

It's my destiny

To fall asleep, 

But I lie here wide awake.


My head ablaze

But my body still

Silently awaiting my fate.


For I cannot sleep,

How hard I try,

My mind just blazes on.


So I'll sit in silence,

And wait alone

Until my mind is gone.


Farewell Sleep, Welcome Insomnia. 

It's been quite a while since last I've seen you.

And now you stand, guarding between 

Me and my own fate.


Goodnight Sleep, Goodmorning Insomnia.

It's getting harder and harder to keep my eyes closed. 

But maybe I can't fall asleep

Because I'm afraid to dream.
