i wake up in the early morning

not being able to sleep,

my mind is swirling in thoughts

which seem to rise from the deep.

i stare up at the ceiling

telling myself all will be fine,

yet the mind will not disconnect –

it continues to beg and whine.

there is a voice which keeps on repeating

over & over


the same thoughts and feelings

i wish i could flush out of my head.

my heart starts to pound incessantly

as certain memories begin to unfold,

& i try so hard to disarm it,


i lay there feeling very distant and cold.

as the seconds

become minutes,


the minutes

become hours,

it is time to get up


step into the shower.


a new day has begun……..
