The darkness your brain holds

Not being able to sleep is one of the most frustrating things.

You lay there in silence,

You roll over.

You would do anything to get your brain to shut off,

But your brain is not ready to sleep yet.

Music running through your brain,

And thoughts,

Plenty of thoughts. 

There is no way to escape the monsters that live deep inside of your head.

Nobody can save you from the darkness that lurks in  your own brain.

You cannot seem to tame the monsters,

For they have a mind of their own.

You can try to trick them all you want,

But they do not cave,

Not even the slightest bit,

Because they have tricks of their own,

And they are determined to keep you awake.

With nothing but your thoughts,

Thoughts flying through your mind,

Thoughts of darkness,

Thoughts of stress,

Thoughts of being alone,

Thoughts  that are not always true.

There is no remedy,

Because everything is temporary,

And nothing lasts long enough to find a permanent fix.
