What haunts at night

Stray thoughts like stringless kites

Haunt my dreamless nights like ghosts

I close my eyes, willing my brain to sleep

Instead it chooses to torture me with thoughts

Thoughts that are best left alone for they only bring regrets

Lamentation, for all that I did wrong keeps me awake

Oh! Begone you who torment me endlessly

For it’s too late to fix what has already happened

Let me rest my weary soul and maybe tomorrow will be a better day

  1. I have been there on many nights. It is hard to shut off sometimes when we have been working so hard all day…I assume there has got to be a way to turn it all off, but I haven’t found it yet.
