I do not sleep tonight
For sleep brings dreams
Dreams are nightmares
Nightmares are life coming unraveled
Life is full of fear
Fear is what leads to the nightmares
Which lead me not to sleep.
Sleep is just a thing I don't really need in life
Life is just a period of chaos that could easily be shortened in time
Time is something there is never enough of in fact I believe it is in short supply
So I will not sleep or dream so maybe I just might gain more time.

I know this feeling. You've expressed it well. It's an exhausting spiral.
