I can't get to sleep I think about the implications Of diving in too deep And possibly the complications Especially at night I worry over situations I know will be all right Perhaps it's just imagination. And day after day it reappears And night after night my heartbeat shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away. Alone between the sheets Only brings exasperation It's time to walk the streets Smell the desperation At least there's pretty lights And though there's little variation It nullifies.
