The covers are warm and comfortable

The mattress thick and soft

The moon is high and the crickets singing

I have walked a thousand miles
My muscles ache

I have kept my contacts in too long
My eyes are red and weary

I am exhausted
Tired and longing for respite

Tossing and turning
My mind will not shut off
My eyes will not close

So I write
When you cannot sleep at two in the morning, what is is that you do ?

I absolutely love the lines:

"I have walked a thousand miles
My muscles ache"


This whole piece is wonderful, because really, what else is there to do when you cannot sleep? ;)

Glad you like them, they felt a bit plain to me, but then again simplicity can be best!
Haha Yep, nothing much. :)
Thank you so very much! :hug:

I lost count of how many nights that I lacked sleep. Nicely written and very well detailed.
