Now I lay me down not to sleep

I just get tangled in the sheets
I swim in sweat three inches deep
I just lay back and claim defeat

It’s 2:40am.  I’m not remotely close to being tired.  I woke up at 6:30am this morning.  Grrr.

My hands are locked up tight in fists
My mind is racing filled with lists
of things to do and things I’ve done
Another sleepless night’s begun



  1. That sucks, sounds like me nearly every night. Good poem, did you write that? Well done

  2. Not mine I’m afraid…Barenaked Ladies – “Who Needs Sleep”.
