Sleepless Wonder

It’s been years since I’ve slept, knowing your never here,
It’s been ages since I’ve closed my eyes, able to forget my fears,
My mind is slowly going numb, I’m not sure I can think straight,
I’m wondering about my sanity, wondering if I can set death a more certain date,
I can’t find what I’m looking for anymore,
Not that I ever really knew what I was looking for,
Maybe a piece of moon light, my own rose,
All I know is, I can’t sleep anymore.

It’s been longer than I can remember sine I’ve rested in peaceful slumber,
It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to forget things I don’t wana’ remember,
Thoughts of you are more gothic than romantic,
I’m unsure of my imagination, it feels slight off topic,
I can’t dream my own way anymore,
Not that I ever had much control over that score,
Maybe a love or my own song,
All I know is, I can’t sleep anymore.

And this torment and pain grows every day I’m stuck in this hell,
I’m screaming inside, knees weak with lack of energy, words stuck on tongue with truths I can’t tell,
I’m not willing to sit here passively anymore but with a messy mind, I can’t do much,
All that’s left of my sanity is waiting on your touch,
I can’t think straight anymore,
I’m up till the moon fade and sunlight floods my floor,
Don’t know what to do, heart unsure,
All I know is, I can’t sleep anymore
