The pain that have cost us, the evils which have never happened.

when sleep is just out of your grasp
you can almost touch it
but its not quite there
slipping out of our fingers
getting a taste
but its just a tease
you lay there in a haze
peaceful, almost restful
but not sleep
no never sleep
when the thoughts are swirling
you cant stop them
they have a mind of their own
keeping you up all night long
shadows dancing on the walls
measuring the hours
until you leave this unfulfilling trance
to a classic insomniac
sleep was never really an option. :(

I LOVE THIS. It's so true (not that I would actually know, I'm  not an insomniac, but, I'm just guessing)  and I love the last line and also all the description. Perfectlly describes not being able to sleep.
