Restless Nights


Lying awake in the dark
Wanting my mind to stop
Shut my eyes and you're there
Need to douse this spark
Must sleep or I'll pop
All cause you don't care

It's been months since we spoke
Miss your laughter and voice
Saw an outline of your face
Surely this is a cruel joke
This torture's not by choice
Without you life's a disgrace

Minutes turn to hours
And yet dreams run away
Voices in my head come alive
Only memories are ours
Sleep time's in decay
The hurt in me you drive

Tell me how can this end
Bring happy times back
We must keep the fight
Break this torturous trend
My heart's turning black
Please no more restless nights

Written in the middle of another restless night.
