Sleep eludes,
Stress exudes a phantom song that plays,
A lilting tune – despite the moon – keeps slumber far away.

Although it’s time to shut my eyes and put my mind at ease,
I lay awake – and sleep forsake – because these rhymes do tease.

It must abate,
I cannot wait!
These maudlin lines must cease!
Alas! I find my words do bind, And I shall find no peace.

My faithful Dim – a cat, no hat –
Has dropped upon my chest,
His sonorous purrs and warm soft fur may yet persuade my rest…

One thought on “Insomnia 080209

  1. Now the world has gone to bed
    Darkness won’t engulf my head
    I can see by infra-red
    How I hate the night

    Now I lay me down to sleep
    Try to count electric sheep
    Sweet dream wishes you can keep
    How I hate the night
