Panic Attack Insomniac

can't sleep
For in the dark I panic
Fear consuming my soul
And I can't stand it

I sit up and scream
A silent sound nobody hears
Trembling in vain
To the same dream I've had for years

Too much loss
In too short of a life
It stabs at me
Like a dull edged knife

I have thoughts and dreams
About things nobody knows
Like where do we really go
When it's the end of our show

My heart races
At a pace much too fast
I sit here wondering
How much longer can this last

Memories fill my head
So many things I'd like to change
If I could just go back in time
Choosing with things to rearrange

Being grateful for what I have
Never replaces what I've lost
Your death was inescapable
I'm still dealing with its cost

Grief knows no boundaries
In the silence I will weep
As the darkness surrounds me
And everyone else is fast asleep
