Sleepless Night

Staring. I spent the night staring
into darkness thrashing in and out 
of sleep. Time moved with the breaks on, 
slowly past this dark, hot night. My 
Queen purring  close to my hip is no 
comfort to me for she sleeps and purrs 
while I endlessly forge through worrisome  
thoughts. Nothing surrounds me, only time 
and darkness. My mind is twisting back
and forth, no clarity . I'm tired, the 
pillows are too warm on this summer day, 
I need rest... but sleep escapes me.
