It Is Too Early To Start My Day

I Wish I Could Sleep

I wake up and look quckly towards the clock

The clock looks right back at me

The time is five fifteen

Way to early what will I do

I leap to the floor since I can't sleep no more

Feed the cat and go on the computer with my eyes still closed

It is amazing what are bodies can do without seeing

Finding friends and commenting on their stories

Something I haven't done as much as I would like to

There is always a story to tell or work that wisks me away

Now because I am not in a great mood I will just visit and regain my composure in time

I am not hungry but I grab a yogurt any way

Expired yesterday but it tastes good

I heard it is still good five days after the expiration date

I will let you know if it is true

Now I wonder what wonderful things I will struggle with today

Bills thats understood and out of the question

Health my neck is kind of sore or stiff I wonder if I slept wrong

Well I feel well rested but thats what I get for going to bed at twelve thirty instead of my usual five A.M.

It was my day off and I went down for a quick nap

We know how that goes...you never wake up

Well the weather has turned cool and now it is time to take out the light jackets

The ones I move around the closet every year and wonder why I have so many

They are to light to wear in the winter and to heavy for the summer

I should just give them away

Anyone want fall jackets that I never wear

They are more like decorations in my closet than clothes

I refuse to wear a jacket after having a light shirt or no shirt all summer

Now the sun isn't even up

What does that tell you

I am going to try to go back to bed

With a little help maybe I will fall back to sleep

I am in limbo land anyone care to join me

I can't think

I can't sleep

All I can do is eat

My body is useless as a rag doll

Hope all is well with you

Off to work later and then the fun begins

I know I willl be tired then

To late to get the sleep I should of got

I guess I could complain but it would all be in vain

Look on the bright side the house is quiet

It is like a morgue and I am the stiff

DREAM ON...funny how our body clocks work..but then again look at the thoughts we write..ideas bouncing around 24-7...so naps are our escape from the now and the then..so poems and stories appear on our pages and people will read them for ages and ages...you do have a way with the words..you " R " loved...
