Soon I'll Sleep Again

Soon I’ll sleep again,
And I will feel no pain,
For a little time,
Peace will be all mine,
My mind will seek
Freedom from the past,
And I’ll be carefree,
Although it will not last.

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
'Soon, I’ll Sleep Again' dates from early 2017, and while it accurately reflects my state of mind at the time of its original creation, my mood ultimately lifted.

that Teddy was speaking of the bad things in our pasts; not our whole past. If that were true, we would all be walking around in a constant state of amnesia. Not knowing where we are or how we got here. But, I do understand about how some things are too painful to keep at the forefront of our mind. As "Old Blue Eyes" said; "Regrets, I've had a few." So have we all, is what I think Teddy was saying. Yes, sleep is a mighty healer and we can forget, for a time. Thank whatever, for that. I heard this loud and clear. ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I understand, of course, and thank you for saying you like it. It's fine, truly. Carl.
