Insomnia.........

Insomnia
I scratch an itch that isn??t there
I toss and turn and pull my hair
I feel the madness creeping near,
My mind is chasing my heart is racing
I close my eyes in search of darkness,
Please take me now and pull me under.
My limbs are heavy, I want to cry
As I see the sun lighting the sky.
Another night, another day
It doesn??t matter they??re all the same.
But I will try again tonight
To chase the darkness of the night
To embrace the sleep that seldom comes
For fear of the madness, caused in its absence.

I'm not sure I would've matched this picture and that poem myself, but the glitter off the water is a different kind of itch, isn't it?
