Insomniac Rhymes

Why am I awake?

Its barely six am and I slept after ten

Surely this body needs more rest?

And certainly this mind does.

Why am I awake?

I’m comfortable in my den

And I’ve tried my very best

To escape these sleepless throes.

I may as well go take

up my paper and pen

And scribble this thought lest

like my sleep, it goes.
