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
Omnipresent
as I try to shut
them out
one
by one
by one
Slam the door.
Turn out the light.
They slide back
from dungeon darkness
of my imagination
and wake me
again
as I doze.
