So So Tired

So many thoughts nagging my sleep
Sewing pictures on a string of light
Parading their way across my vision
Straining the eyes to stay open tonight

Decisions are yet to be made
They remain taunting tired eyes
The cousin of death waits patiently
Until I cut the bond of lasting ties

Minutes fast forward to hours
As the ceiling plays a slideshow
Riding down on a sleepless cloud
Painfully awake on nocturnal road

The morning sunrise slowly creeps in
My tired mind and body begin to weep
Maybe tonight I will be shown mercy
To finally get some much needed sleep
