Insomnia Poetry

Yes. The insomnia is back. I seem to suffer it annually around the equinoxes — I suppose it takes my system its own time to adjust to the seasons changing. I usually am at my most prolific, writing-wise, when I go through these bouts. Thought I'd share one of my insomnia poems. And be gentle, please, I'm fragile :)

 I want to sleep.
      My soul is not quiet.
The night wind
      Waits outside my door
Whispering secrets
      In an unknown tongue.
I wish
      For fairies in my garden.
They could
      Sing me to sleep,
Silence for a while
      This everworking mind.
