Insomnia

I find myself awake at night
A deep unease attends my soul
I’m weary from the futile fight
Endless running now burns my soles
A cry for help I fain would raise
But I fear my pleas would echo
Off unseen walls for endless days
So my heart sinks further below
The place I dread is endless dark
The picture of a thousand tales
In truth their words may miss the mark
From shores return no man who sails
For Charon’s fee is price too steep
World of coin can’t convey you twice
The waters of the Styx too deep
Ne’er pledge so high for roll of dice
Though from this plight I cannot keep
My soul, within me I still fight
So not to enter endless sleep
I find myself awake at night
