Dark lonely nights…

tick tock

tick tock

why am I uphaunting pic dark night

it’s 3:00 am

I toss and turn

with feelings of dread

then tread down the stairs

looking for solace

look to the medicine cabinet

no help there

I’m stronger than that

pick up a book

sure to work

tire me out

it sidetracks a while

but the worry’s still there

deep down inside

what is this

sense of impending doom

I try to analyze

no answers there

just a deep feeling of unease

I talk to myself

try to console myself

even cajole myself

I’m not fooling myself

there’s something troubling me

until resolution

no rest……..
