The Insomniac’s Lament

The Insomniac’s Lament

O slumber, elude me no longer!

Why must you monger

Tiredness and grief?

Long have I sought you

(Little have I fought you)

I wish I had caught you

Six hours ago!

But I stare at the ceiling

Devoid of all feeling

Except for frustration at you.

TO SLEEP!

TO LIE WITHOUT A PEEP!

(Sound, not the marshmallow.)

Minor it may seem,

But this is my dream–

To be

Insensate.
