Overkill

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 alright
Perhaps it’s just imagination*

I have been having trouble sleeping as of late. I go to bed, eventually fall asleep. Wake. Wander. Lay on the Couch. Ponder. Wander. Head back to bed. Sleep a bit… Rinse. Lather. Repeat. Sometimes a song will be in my head or a writing idea or something I forgot at the store.

But mostly, it is useless “worry over situations, I know will be alright”. Giant waste of time.

In my teen years, I listed to Men at Work quite a bit. (yes, back when they were new and happening and from far, far away). This song came on the other day and of course I knew all the lyrics and sang along. But it also made me feel better. Someone else does this… enough that he wrote a song… a popular song and other people identified with it.

My point? Not sure I have one… except if you find yourself doing this… Colin and I are probably awake also so don’t feel alone.
