Sleepless Night

Oh sleepless night.
I await the moment where my eyelids meet.
Patiently I lay as I hear my lover snore.
Soft and humble.
How I wish to join his slumber.
But my eyes would disagree.
Torn in a battle.
Insomnia in the lead.
I have tried all the tricks.
But this is one I can’t resist.
I lay patiently.
Waiting for my turn,
To take the plunge into a dreamers world.
Oh sleepless night.
You have got the best of me.

    I had the same thing that night! But I didn’t express it so beautifully.

    This one really appeals to me, I don’t think I’ve ever heard insomnia described so beautifully before πŸ™‚
