Insomnia:With A Friend:I Just Want To Go To Bed(With Clipart About Sleep):I Can't Close My Eyes

Updated on June 15, 2012

Sometimes I just want to sleep. When I can't sleep, I worry. When I worry, i write.Sometimes what I write doesn't make sense, Sometimes it does. But either way, I write...Maybe it's a good thing I can't sleep....

I Just Want To Sleep

Source

I Can't Sleep...Again


Insomnia

I close my eyes to go to sleep

I listen as my heart beats

I hear the ringing in my ears

A noise that once brought me to tears

Is now a bedtime lullaby

Helping the minutes pass by

I hear in the distance a train

An echo of my sleepless pain

I hear a lonely dog’s bark

Just another sound in the dark

As I try to drift to slumber land

I feel a wet nose upon my hand

My faithful friend, protecting me

As we both try to sleep

      maziocreate - I have a wonderful little pug who is the best dog in the world. He sleeps at the food of my bed every night. Although he is very comforting to me, he is also the reason I am kept awake many nights...he snores louder than my husband!

      Ahh yes, the ever present problem of trying to sleep. Sometimes, for me, it is the rumbling snoring from one of the dogs that is the culprit for keeping me awake or awakening me. Wouldn't have it any other way though.

      Love it. I sleep with two women every night. One is my wife, the other has a wet nose. That wet nose can be a real source of comfort. Up, awesome and beautiful!
