Rest is Nigh

Eyes tired
brain wired
thoughts bouncing off the walls

Pray to sleep
deadlines to meet
but an unquiet mind calls

The drug of choice
a whispered voice
singing a lullaby

To the ears of my spirit
so my heart can hear it
and know that rest is nigh

Been through this. A painful experience.

From your heart, soft and vulnerable at the end. Therein lies the lullaby. This moves like one.
