It’s time to think deeply about sleep. Dive into the pool of night and let whatever it is you find there take poetic form. (I hope this prompt doesn’t make an insomniac out of you!)

This prompt is rather appt

considering i have barely slept

in the past 24 hours

i wish i had magical superpowers

where i could wave a wand

of magical sleep dust

where my head would hit the pillow

with one big giant thud

instead i sit here wide awake as can be.

I spend the whole day drinking coffee

and when it comes time to hit the sack

my eyes are wide awake

a million things running around my brain

the sound of the wind, and often times rain

still cant put me into a slumber

perhaps i need to be hit over the head with a peice of lumber.

I have tried a glass of wine before bed,

even some meditation instead,

A long Bath

or a warm shower

i wish i could just switch everthing off

Heaven knows i would rather be in dreamland

fighting off dragons

or traveling the world

through my imagination

than sitting here

writting this poem
