Sleeping lightly, I am suddenly awake
Is it night yet or has morning arrived
I check my watch, alas it is only 1:30 a m
I twist and turn, trying to find a comfortable position
I beat my pillow into submission, get my blanket just right
But the elusive sleep……… refuses to come even when invited
I turn the light on and get up, giving up on sleep
This light sleep is a gift from my thyroid medication
Now I can try to go back to sleep with the help of some medication
Or stay awake till my body is tired enough to want to sleep
I don’t have to get up early in the morning, I can sleep in
So I go out of my room and start to walk, hoping to tire myself
And then perhaps I’ll be able to fall asleep, way past morning!
Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “morning.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!
