Sleep

Sleep

I should be asleep

Yet I am awake

Thinking about something

Thinking about nothing.

 

I should be asleep

But my pillow is damp

There are tears on my cheeks

My eyes are exhausted.

 

I should be asleep

I set my alarm for bed at 10PM

It is 1:25AM…

 

I should be asleep, but I can’t find my way there.

It is 1:26AM and I am awake.

I am sad, I am overwhelmed, I am anxious, I am frustrated!

 

Why when I crawl into bed do these thoughts come with me?

I  should be asleep.
