Sleepless Nights

toss and turn turn and toss awake forever feeling cross try sleeping tricks counting sheep relaxing muscles breathing deep think of work worry a lot much too cold but then too hot lie on belly turn on back sigh a lot desire snack stare at the dark get up for drink check the phone watch you tube link nudge your partner wake them up deny you did tempers erupt no sleep at all try not to weep dawn light appears drop off to sleep 30 October 2022 Brian Strand Premiere Contest
