Falling Asleep

Some idle thoughts as I was falling asleep last night, and they formed themselves like this:

Bow that has been strung too tight
Bird too long too long in flight

Wind that howls
Rain that weeps
Moon that bleeds

Let me sleep
Let me sleep
Let me sleep

Traveler without his path
Wraith without his wrath
Emptiness without shape or form
Can never be filled

And so am I
And so I am
Awake awake
Eternally awake
In a world that
Feels like dreaming.

So tell me now, don't hold back: what keeps you awake at night, prevents you from sleeping, and what do you do about it?
