INSOMNEUROTIC

wind down, wind down

clear your head.

sleep, sleep now,

go to bed.

trickle, trickle,

drip, drop.

trickle, trickling,

thought, thoughts.

a plan, a checklist,

avoidance, despair,

light’s out, leg’s out,

my nose, my hair,

my child, my future,

my husband, my fate.

shut it down, shut down,

no more worry, it’s late.

wind down, slow down,

give it a rest.

sleep, sleep now,

to be at your best.

tick     tock

      tick     tock

         watching

    minutes

pass

on a clock.

ten, eleven,

one, three,

gone, wasted

spent on nothing.

six, seven,

time to arise,

covers over head,

hide, hide, hide.
