Sleepless Nights

Insomnia creeps in
Even as I attempt
To count sheep
No matter how hard
I try
My thoughts rally
Together
The worries seep in
Deep
The more I try to close
My eyes
The more my heart bangs
Against its cage
Tucking me in fright
As the shadows
Dance around me

By Ashley Houston

This was a poem I did for #vss365 on Twitter a few days ago. The word prompt was even. 🙂
