Restless Legs

by Brenda   Mar 24, 2016


As I climb into bed
with thoughts to rest
my weary head,
I snuggle up
to my beloveds back
only to have
my legs attacked-
I fault him not
it's not me he sought
as his feet
ran a marathoners beat.
I roll over
in attempts to get away
from the mosh pit fray,
knowing our nightly foray
will make me tired today-
I cling to the edge
of our bed
filled with dread
thoughts of having
to sleep alone
has made me forlorn-
I attempt to sleep
near my heart
I keep
my true love
with his dancing feet...

    This made me laugh. It's sweet how positive this is. Reminds me of my late husband and his snoring.

    Awwee, hehe. I love the rhyming pattern, Brenda! ^_^
    I understand how maddening those little kickers must get. My grandmother also has RLS. It's really maddening for her.
    I can especially see this happening- when you just want to snuggle up to your love and be comforted by them at the end of the day. ): But I really like what Michael said, about how your love pushes past this and so I still can't help but find this poem of yours overwhelmingly sweet. :3
