Insomnia


Insomnia can kill you some times,
And can give you bad times.
All you got is the wall in front,
And creepy sounds back frost.

Every step and every voice,
Run away; that is your choice.
May lead you to shouts and screams,
And maybe a lot more creepy dreams.

Waking up in the middle of the night,
And not able to sleep till the last sight.
Yes! Insomnia can kill you sometimes,
And can give you bad times.

Everywhere Insomnia spread,
One sound and you are dead.
More like a late walk in the woods.
And then all drowned in floods.

Every minute seems hard to pass,
Every sound makes the glass.
And every sound makes the pointer,
Gives you a hard encounter.

Creepy stories in your mind flashin'
And everythin' comes back lashin'
Finally you discover,
All is done and over.

Rise and shine; It's mornin',
You get up all frownin'
All you wanted was sleep,
But the whole night you had to weep.

Yes! Insomnia can kill you sometimes,
And can give you bad times.

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
