If I wake up late at night
When dreams fail to take flight
Can I go outside?
Where it's cool and wide
Or stay here in
Where it's cramped and thin
Can the stars solve my sleeplessness?
Can the wind sweep away this mess?
Or will it take a pill
To kill the ill
And send me back to dreaming
It makes me think of the kind of insomnia where you want to lay down and sleep, but for some reason your body wants to walk for miles. The rhyming is pretty good and you have a great rhythem without sounding like a bad hallmark card. Usually, I'm not one for poems this short, but you've managed to fit everything in without making it feel rushed. This is a very good write, and I shall be adding the to my favs. ^_^
