The night sighs in restful peace,
Yet my mind tosses and tumbles.
    Questions pull at my blankets
    giving me chills.
Fears scrabble under the bed lurking
in the dark.
    Rolling over, I hide in my pillow,
    searching for solace and sleep.
Nestled deep in my thoughts,
dozing, my limited time.
    And, I have miles to go. Many miles.
    However, the road is blurred with sleeplessness.
