I couldn't sleep at night
My eyes are cold and dry
Tired of being tired but my eyes remained open and I could never sink into my dreams not even when the world is quiet and the night is dark
Tired of constantly disturbed by the screeching noice from cars passing by outside, the endless quarrelling of my mother on her phone, the inconsiderate disturbance from my sister
Tired of my mind being occupied with what I should do if I can't sleep, how I should be falling asleep, trying to make sense out of it, the clock is ticking, I have to wake up, but I was never asleep—
Just take my anxiety out of me.
