Wide Awake

I can not sleep
though it is night;
my brain is to active
my mind sees light.

Apparently I drank
too much coffee today;
two black, two irish
too much for one day?

My heart pumps strong
each definite beat;
reminds me, soundly
that I can not sleep!

My head on my pillow
my body in bed;
how can I sleep
with this light in my head?
