Unable to fall asleep.
Head unable to stop pounding.
Feeling dizzy as can be, tired as can be, but just can't fall asleep.
I've tried to lie down but every time i do then i still can't sleep. My body wants and needs to go to sleep, but my mind wanders doesn't want to. my mind wanders off to a far away land where everything is just right and reality doesn't exist.
As I sit here writing this I picture myself in bed and asleep and dreaming away as if nothing is wrong. Sleeplessness. Why can't I sleep.
I guess I'm just having one sleepless night. I guess I'll try to fall asleep again.I hope i can

I like how it came across as if you were writing it in the middle of the night; a little haphazard and whimsical

Interesting article. I guess I could relate. I hate sleepless nights :)

on line 5 I think you forgot to put 'and' after 'wanders...'
