“Good night”

 

Sleep

Sleep

Sleep

Why can’t it just come?

 

Up, awake

Kitchen, fridge – open.

Door, light – on.

Leftover Chinese.

Can’t get the needed sleep,

fill the void,

that gut.

 

Z-z-z-Quil.

Sleeping pills.

Warm tea.

Hops and barley distilled.

No help, no relief.

Just a game of

waiting.

 

Tap-tap-tappy-tap.

Desk drawer, notebook paper

dying pens, Caped Crusader.

Hiding in a dark-lit cave.

The glowing light of Liquid Crystal,

a distraction of entertainment.

Old memories, made anew.

 

Just distraction.

Wait till rest.

Until then,

just try the best.

 

“…Good morning”
