Ode to Insomnia

Sweet sleep
You take the pressures of the day and turn them into dreams
And yet those same pressures keep you from me.
What choice have I but to dwell on those pressures here in my wakefulness?
For if my sleep denies me I must think how to suppress those pressures.
Yet with that thinking, do I not suppress the very sleep I crave?
Ah well
Tomorrow is another night.


  1. I know insomnia all too well. Too many long nights.... I love your writing style!!

  2. Thank you - sometimes the only way to cope with insomnia is to give in and use the time productively although it does sometimes lead me to add sarcasm due to tiredness!
