Road patrol…

Peer out through the curtains

watch up and down the street,

walk around on tip toes

‘cos everyone’s asleep.

Puff away quite cheerfully

nobody here to share,

spend hours at the window

stuck in a late-night stare.

 

 

 

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.
