Sleeplessness: Master, what is my future?

A doziness, before time you never were!
A flimsiness, you have been!
An indisposition, you are!
A tension, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term sleeplessness
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for restlessness

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Pi (π)
May I pass a metre, furnished so people might see
Newly pleasant innuendos, merrily informing, and oh but provided free?
Unrest or tumult feel all too apparent. But is clutter?
Commotion, noise? - or disquiet, upheaval? Darn! I neglected flutter!
I reckon agitation and therefore fussiness, but happily ought I
- speak concepts so - abstracts written with equations spry?
