Untitled - Chasing My sleep

by Everlasting   Mar 19, 2020

My sleep abandoned me
when being awake hugged me tightly
into the needs of my babies

Now my sleep wanders alone
like a hungry dog searching for food

So at nights I chase my sleep
with whatever I can find in the fridge
but my sleep runs away
as soon as my babies awake

    Hello Everlasting,
    The accursed insomnia, the hounds of exhaustion howl throughout this excellent poem of yours. I sincerely hope you find the peace in slumber sometime soon.
    Regards, Tony.
