I Can Not Sleep

The worries are running my mind.
Why are there so many,
ruining my rest,
causing me pain?
They leap monstrous
from my mind
and grow
as I try to shut
them out
by one
by one
Slam the door.
Turn out the light.
They slide back
from dungeon darkness
of my imagination
and wake me
as I doze.
