Story of My (Night) Life

Daydreaming at Night
Thoughts spinning, I write
Nonsense over again.

Heart thumping, breathing,
Eyes open, staring
I want to fall asleep.

Analyzing all
Anything at all
My brain won't stop thinking.

Metallic tasting
I search for something
That makes my brain shut off.

No rest for the weary.

I realized this afternoon that the last stanza could possibly sound...weird. As in, it could be interpreted as looking for drugs. I don't do drugs, even ones that might help me go to sleep (I tried Melatonin once...it didn't help). Just...clarifying that.
