sleepless nights

So tired
Ready to hit the sack
I lay there restless
Legs twitching,
Arms moving in mid-air
A sudden jolt and I'm completely awake
There is no sound in our house,
No lights on
Only the sound of moving traffic on state route 66
So why can't I sleep?

    I suffer from insomnia if I worry about something. Sometimes, avoidance of the thoughts of precarious events is not possible.

    I had a similar feeling last night after being on vacation for 5 days. I was exhausted enough, but not enough to stay sound asleep? I'm just weird. lol Great piece, Karen! :)
