Insomnia

Tick-tock, tick-tock
You sleep throughout the day
And lie wide awake at night
Tick-tock, tick-tock
You’re desperately trying to find a way for your mind to shut down till the next light
Tick-tock, tick-tock
All you want is for your cogitation to stop
Just take a break, please!
But no, its hold on you will just not release
Tick-tock, tick-tock
It won’t stop running
Taking various twists and turns
Old routes you’d long forgotten about
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Wading through murky waters
Diving through and hauling a vast array of memories to the surface
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Recalling past events with new perspective
Reflecting on how much better you could’ve handled each and every nuisance
Tick-tock, tick-tock
Salt water in your lungs
Gasping
Thrashing
Tenacious efforts to reach the shore
Tick-tock, tick-tock
And then you finally give in and stop trying
You lie still on your back
Tick-tock, tick
The next thing you know, you’ve floated to the coast
It’s morning
