Sleepless

Updated on August 5, 2011

 

Early is late

Late is early

I lose track these days

On this endless loop

That is time

Time.

Something I posses a lot of these days

Time to think

Time to write

But never time to dream

Sleep eludes me like a falling star

Fleeting fast

So fast that in a blink of an eye

It dissipates

To a wondrous place

So tangible you can almost taste

The sweet nectar

Of that sacred act

Dear to so many

Sleep.

I long for it

The waves of calm

Relief from the demands

Of the waking world

I can sail on clouds

Or fly through the air

I can see landscapes never touched by man

And hold the moon in my hands

Sleep.

I long to hear lullabies

Echoing softly in my mind

Painting pictures

Far surpassing any masterpiece

Created by an artist

Sleep.

I would give anything to have

Just one hour

One second

One moment

Of that wonderful word

Sleep.

      Awesome poem, BethanyLynn. I feel that way, too.......the ever elusive night of good sleep to erase the complexities of the day(s). Voted up and awesome.

      I really liked that, the buried treasure for the insomniac, sleep.
