Life's about making mistakes and trying to learn from them, most people don't learn from their mistakes the first time they make them, but that's what friends are for. They take your hand and help you think clearly

You find it hard to sleep again
The fear, you think, starts seeping in
And with this you shutter in the night
Wishing for the thing you seek known as day light.

Now as the night starts closing in
The fear of sleep starts to begin
So as you gulp down more caffeine,
The buzz in your head starts pounding mean
Silently you start closing your eyes
And even your yawns start becoming sighs.
Your mind tries to think about anything
To which it can cling
So it won’t start to drift
Into a dream, so swift.

Your dream I can not see it here
Or even feel you near
I wonder quietly if you’re alright
Because right now you’re out of sight
I know you are afraid
That in your bed sleep has laid
A trap for you to sleep
And so you weep.
But please don’t fear…

Sleep is so sweet
That in a dream you meet
Your true desires…
But maybe, it’s because of your desires
That you fear sleep
And so once again you begin to weep…

For my best friend...
Hypophobia- irrational fear of sleep.
