I can’t keep awake.

I can’t keep awake
and when I am
I can’t keep my mind in place
it runs fast
and it stops my ears from listening
because the thoughts it thinks
are quick
and rarely stopping.

When I’m asleep
it stays busy
creating dreams
playing beneath my eyelids
and I can’t stay wake
can’t keep myself
thinking with purpose
rather my brain
changes the thought
and writes out the rest.

My body is exhausted
as it sleeps
my brain continues to creep
finding work
finding dreams to play
it can’t quit
it doesn’t rest
always thinking
till the very last.

Thanks for reading.
