consistently weary
persistently dreary
walking in a grey, drab world
muffled and gruffled
I continue snappily
less than happily
if I could clear this sleep-lack
if I could only find the knack
to sleep all night
without a break
without a wake
to shift my aches and pains
perhaps I’d get
my focus back
if I could find
the sleep I lack

  1. Great poem Suzy. I’m sorry to hear you have so much trouble sleeping at night though. Have you ever thought about making the siesta part of your daily routine? If you catch a few zzz’s for 20mins in the afternoon it will not only reduce the risk of diabetes and heart disease, but also boost your concentration during those snoozy afternoon hours. Knowing you got some shut-eye during the day will likely calm your frustrations while you’re lying awake at night too…
