Sleep tight…

bedtime

The wrong side of bed

is where I started today.

I woke up in a grump,

and grumpy I’ve stayed.

I waited all night

for a non-showing guest,

listening out for his car

deprived me of rest.

Now it’s nighttime again

and I’m ready to snore.

Bedtime is here,

I’ve got dreams to explore.

A joint effort…

Solitary smoke

floats aimlessly through the room.

A lazy smile dawdles along behind.

Another puff

clears the air,

and peaceful intentions settle inside.

Sleep patiently hovers

close by.

A long day…

 

Wide awake, mind buzzing.

Thoughts in every direction.

Can’t sit still, can’t lie straight.

Watching hours pass by.

Shadow monkeys play loudly.

Out my window, in the moonlight.

Bedtime nags me to get closer.

I need help to relax.

Mary-Jane blows me over.

I can finally sleep.
