Insomnia

My first attempt at writing a pantoum

I close my eyes.

It’s dark, yet noisy.

No sound can be heard outside.

Yet within, they keep calling.

It’s dark, yet noisy.

It’s impossible to rest.

Yet within they keep calling,

Interrupting my peaceful nest.

It’s impossible to rest.

But I can’t give up now.

Interrupting my peaceful nest,

I can’t seem to dream somehow.

But I can’t give up now,

Since time is passing by.

I can’t seem to dream somehow,

But at least I need to try.

Since time is passing by,

Tomorrow will soon arrive.

But at least I need to try.

Since I haven’t left in time.

Tomorrow will soon arrive.

Oh, how scared am I.

Since I haven’t left in time,

Today still lingers by.
