"I should go to sleep ,I'm tired and wide-awake with thoughts racing through me peddling and spinning with no breaks. I think I need a break before I dive in a lake that's deep in my mind.
I'm inclined to search and never find when I'm blind, seeking clarity in my thoughts, apparently I exhort a kind of melancholy state when its late.
Insomnias Date
2oclock, I'm struggling to shut off, thoughts running amuck,
Stop, Is what I tell myself. I hope my brain will listen and surround me in a wealth of dreams so I redeem a token of self, conscious eyes on the shelf, disguising psyche to melt.
Impel a monodrama

Maybe ill be calmer in the morning, dispel and harbor in the same breath. Unless in dreaming an inane quest forces me to wake up In the same mess."

Track Name: Toss and Turn
Take your time,
you will find, in every line
a fence to climb.
When you fear all that's near,
your thoughts resign.
When you're scared and unprepared
for life's design.

Tell your friends that you are fine,
avoiding all that talk.
Running into obstacles
when you would rather walk.
The people around your shell
in tiny webs they're caught.

Toss and turn
all you learn when crimes adjourned,
your mind will burn.
And the flames pick up their speed.
When patience is all you need.
You are grateful for all the opposites,
clashing with all you read.

So take your time

words jumping off the page,
enticed by an empty rage,
whispering in syllables
through the ear of a shaking cage

so take your time
