The thoughts run deep,

and when I sleep,

the sad and tortured thoughts,

they creep...

Into my mind,

and then I find,

I cannot help but sob and weep...

And toss and turn,

and then I yearn

for sleep so deep and deep.

Yet I cannot keep

my mind asleep.

For it wakens me

with thoughts that see

into the very soul of me.
