Struggled to Sleep

Sleepless was the night  
When mind flurried into thoughts  
Night slowly descended
Then light filled & lit the room  

Realize... day has come  

I can feel my body  
Heavy of exhaustion  
Eyes, and head, unsteadily aware...  

I wonder  
Why I've not slept  
Ponder for reasons  
Yet  
No word comes to mind...  

I am half-alive  

Search for the blame  
For what kept me awake  

Then I remind myself...  
Of what went through my brain

Dreary thoughts  
Undying lust  
All that I've bled & yearned for...  


So I write To settle  
My thoughts, curiosity  

In hopes to finally fall asleep  
To restore my life force
