Sleepless Nights

The late John Lennon described exactly how I feel. This night is moving lethargically, and is unreal. Just listen to his lyrics on the White Album. He can tell you about my current conundrum. I have too much on my mind right now. I must close my eyes and fall asleep somehow. The most soporific thoughts are what I can’t think. Am I able to erase my mind and keep it on the blink? I am here in bed, but I can’t get a single wink.

    The brain has its mind of its own at times. I espically love the second line A great description of a sleepless night. Warm Smiles, Connie
