Rest In Bed

always the dread at midnight
assuming a million attempts at slumber
closing my eyes with hope
shutting down my mind
oblivion is beckoning

when i finally do
i can’t stay asleep
waking every few hours
yet still hoping for a longer stretch
that never comes

then the light fills the room
and all i want to do
is stay in bed
sinking in deeper
to the dreams which also keep me awake

is this the prelude
to wishing for my demise
slower starts every day
feeling the energy drain away
as sleep doesn’t revive me anymore

      1. Magnesium, I’ve heard, can help some people specifically if they are deficient but the times I’ve tried it, no luck. I will do some research on manganese. Thanks!
