No Rest

Darkness sets in but sleep evades me
Into my dreams I wish to be set free
The sweet escape is all that I seek
Yet my prospects are seeming so bleak
Though the hour wanes my eyes stay wide
Seeking rest that continues to hide
“No rest for the wicked” the saying does go
What my misdeed could have been I do not know
Refuge from this weary world I implore
But my pleas fall unanswered to the floor
