Talking in my Sleep

I am known to talk in my sleep
Instead of counting little sheep
I giggle and I laugh out loud
You’d think that I was in a crowd

The laughing might jolt me awake
I need my sleep, for heaven’s sake
But I expound on some grammar rule
And yell at students in some school

Last night I laughed so hard I ached
Got told off by my grumpy mate
From the bedroom I was banished
My hope of getting Zsss just vanished

Can’t help it if I talk at night
Much like I do during daylight
I guess the poor guy needs a break
To alleviate his poor headache

I wonder sometimes what I say
Do I give some secret away?
What if I moan someone’s name?
Asking him to be wild not tame?

Oh dear, oh dear, I need to find
Someway to close this mouth of mine
Or else my laughter will turn to tears
And I’ll be alone through coming years!

    This was really funny Eileen! I've been told by some people that I can be quite sporadic in my sleep... sometimes almost punching people in the face! One point my brother asked me while I was asleep what 2+2 equaled and I said 16... like what the heck? Quirky and different... I like it.

    Glad to know I have a fellow sufferer here! ;) I don't know...I'd find it quite amusing. My friend suggest that hubby video tape me so I can have a laugh about it. A few nights ago...I just couldn't stop laughing! We are a special lot! :)

    Such a funny story that's not always funny late night. Have you tried breathable duck tape? lol

    OH MY...DUCK TAPE???? Or was that DUCT TAPE??? David....um...that might change the mood a little...and not really be conducive to sleep...if you catch my drift! ;)

    my wife talks in her sleep but there is no chance she will be banished. This was fun.
