sleep won’t come

I lie here
Shivering in fear
Darkness enveloping me
I feel as if
I might die
I cant cry
No matter
How hard I try
Emotional overwhelm
Every fibre of my being
Feels everything
Alone, afraid
I close my eyes
but am unable to fall asleep
The sound of birds
singing in the trees
outside my window
I look at the clock beside me
almost 5 AM!
Might as well
Get up and shower
The shower soothes my soul
Then I will make coffee
Go out in the garden
And listen to the birds sing
