Rest-less

 

 

I lay in bed,

but it seems dreams won’t greet

me tonight.

Ok,

I have to wake up at a quarter-to-nine. 

I decipher the time I have left to sleep.

Five hours and

twenty 

one 

minutes.

But still,

it matters not.

My mind seems cursed,

and my stomach’s locked. 

The timing couldn’t be worse,

I’ll do all I can to make these thoughts

disperse. I count sheep

like, one,

two,

three,

four,

then I think I hear a knock at the door.

But, it’s just the clock 

reminding me of what’s in store.

If I fall asleep 

in four, 

three,

two,

one, 

I’d get four 

hours and twent-

y-two minutes of sleep.

I keep track of every 

second that sneaks past me.

Every time I near sleep 

I hear my heart asking 

for a revolution while my mind

evades persecution.

The 

tug-

of-

war

makes my body restless all-the-more. 

To sleep, 

my head must be divested

from the process but instead,

putting it to rest is a chore. 

The anxiety

grips me to my core.

Replays of the day pour

out of my head on to the floor.

But, if I fall asleep now I’ll get two hours

and four-

teen minutes 

of sleep.

I count

sheep

like one,

two, 

three.

 

Please just give me 

this bit of rest,

only then will I be at peace.
