Sleepiness

Sleepiness

There alone before
my computer
Fighting the sleep
that creeps like
looter
My brain is
sluggish,lids are
dragging
Against my eyeball
that rolls like a
marble..

I poke the keyboard
My fingers sometimes
miss and slip
It takes a few seconds
to punch the next
quip
As I am about to
start, my eyes close
their own
Again I am in a
limbo, swirling into
the unknown

Suddenly, I open my
lids and find
my hands on the
waiting keyboard
Squinting my heavy
eyes to find the
words
I end up typing the
wrong chord

My thoughts are like
winding road
Focus is the least I
could load
Oh, I need to finish
this piece, I said
Or else I forget,
what I've read

But my eyes can't
connect
What my mind
recollects
Finally my body
slumps over the
board
And I surrender 
To a triumphant
slumber...

    Digitally speaking very good. I'm sure you'll check it out after the triumphant slumber!
