myself and me

Sleepless night

Tonight, I can't fall asleep
the moon is too bright
shine cold light
on the empty loverseat
the intimacy has long gone
melancholy fills the air
how could I
fall asleep


Tonight, I can't fall asleep
the wind is so strong
shaking the pedals off the branches
the soft whisper has died out
the roar fills my ears
how could I
fall asleep


Tonight, I can not fall asleep
the bed is lifeless
neat and white
without you in my dreams
nightmares keep my eyes wide open
how could I
fall asleep


Why should I fall asleep
with the moon so bright
with the wind so strong
with no one warm the bed
with no company in my dream
I won't fall asleep

    I have nights like this, as I'm sure we for various reason, it's a powerful peice some will find comfort in a giant moon outside but your point comes across very well, nightmares keep me up too, your imagery speaks.
