Poem About Sleeping In

Updated on June 20, 2012

Poem About Sleeping In

Resting warm, your dreams so deep
It yanks you violently from sleep

The screeching buzz invades your brain
Could it be morning once again?

And rolling over, fumbling round
You lash out, try to quash the sound

'Just 5 more minutes' - what a phrase
And soon you're back in slumber phase

Again, it rings, alarms and wakes
Your hand jerks out, the table shakes

Asleep, awake, a battleground
Fought 'tween you and piercing sound

Open eyes, you're still in bed
But where is that alarm you dread?

You check the time and feel the pain -
You're late for work (that's right - again)

Encore!

Fancy another ditty from the same author?

How would it feel to be trapped inside a waking dream...

      Beautifully rhymed poem, though I have not had the need for the buzz as long as I can remember.

      Off to read the encore !

      Voted up and beautiful.

      I'm doing it all the time. I think I've become lazier since being self employed...

      Thanks for the comment, much appreciated :-)
