There’s a knocking noise sounding
out in my head.
The only time it occurs is when I lay
down for bed.
It increases ten fold every time I
close my eyes.
It’s so painful, I find myself trying
not to cry.
Then I hear a voice happen along,
it screamed to me, “Don’t sleep!”
I ask it, “Why?” and it replied,
“that’s where your demons creep.”
It said that if I sleep I will never be
able to wake.
So it keeps me awake, and I suffer from
insomnia all for my sake.
