No Rest For The Weary

I’m trying to sleep
but thoughts run too deep
invading my need to rest.
I toss and I turn
and longingly yearn
for victory in my quest

to turn off my mind,
be soundly entwined
with silence that rules the night.
But life still intrudes
and sleep still eludes
the need to escape my plight.
