Sleeping on the Couch (a Poem)
Sleeping on the Couch
What is worst than sleeping alone?
What sucks more than not being next to that special one you love?
What hurts more than not hold a loved one who's at home?
What could be worst than sleeping together in a small bed?
Life is filled enough with aches, pains, and ouch...
There is still nothing worst than having to sleep on a couch.
Tired, lonely and cold
Tossing and turning... can't find a comfortable spot
Dogs whining, everytime you turn over gets old
Feeling like I did something wrong though tonight,I'm just guilty of snoring a lot
Waking up in the morning still stuffy and my nose is still runny...
Now I have a pain in my neck that makes me go ouch
I can only ask you... what is worst than sleeping on the couch
The crazy things people will do for those they love
Trouble sleeping on a lumpy couch, just so someone else can be comfortable
At least I don't have to deal with neighbors living above
Toss and turn with the TV and feeling terrible
No comfort, peace or solace
I thought a man's home is his palace
A bump on my head just over my eye
Being head butted by my girlfriend ..the delicate butterfly
Poke in the face by eye glass frames
She trying to torment me awake, is this one of her saddistic games?
She taunts me and laughs... even though I am very tired and not feeling well
I think this is Dante's 7th level of hell
Staying on the couch all night feeling my back pain ...ouch
There is nothing worst than sleeping on a couch
This little peom was meant in tongue and cheek
But the small of my back aches, cracks and creeks
I'm happy that the dogs and her are getting a good nights sleep
Oh how I long for restful sleep, dreaming and passed out deep
But I rollover, stretch, curl-up into a ball, cough, sneeze and slouch
So here I am trying to sleep on the couch
Not even counting sheep, just drifting away into sweet sleep
"Lullaby" by Johannes Brahms
