I’m sleepless tonight

Thats me tonight. Not sleeping. Not a wink of sleep.
I tried everything. In the end I turned on the radio. Got up. Went online and read email and blogs. No point is staying in bed with my mind on overdrive.
Its just gone 3 AM now. I doubt I will get any sleep.
I made myself a cup of tea. I plan on reading for the rest of the night.
If I can and am able to I will sleep for 2 or 3 hours in the morning. Once its light outside.
Sucks to try to sleep but be unable to.

Poetry

staring blankly ahead
numb, disengaged
numb to everything
everyone around her going on with life
as she sits and tries to breathe
rapid heartbeat
shallow breath
feeling so unsettled
unstable, the instability is the worst thing
she hears others voices
sees them in front of her
they try to engage with her
but she cant engage with them
she cant speak
for if she does
a torent of tears
will escape her eyes
slide down her face
why? why is she so sad?
haunted by memories
memories of horrible things
in her past
the memories, last
unable to stand them now
not for another minute
so she somehow starts to try
to distract
to engage her mind
as time ticks by
ever so slowly
and she ponders
is it going to be like this forever?
