My share of gloom

The night has set,
And the darkness has crept.
And here I’m lying down,
With lots of worries in my head.
Not a wink of sleep,
Not even a lazy yawn.
All I’m doing is thinking,
Thinking about things going wrong.
My head’s in a muddle,
For everything seems a puzzle.
Things that seemed so simple,
Seem more of a jumble.
With tears in my eyes,
I look for company.
But an eerie silence,
Is what that greets me.
My thoughts are hazy,
I’m still in a daze.
Time isn’t passing,
Seems like even it is resting.
Sorrow seems to last like eternity,
Life is filled with obscurities.
I look for answers,
But none do I get.
All I wish for now,
Is a little bit of sleep.
That I may escape,
Into my world of fantasy.
Of joys, happiness and smiles.
But they are far away,
Uncountable miles.
I now await patiently,
For the break of dawn.
Hoping that the rising sun,
May dispel the darkness and the gloom.
