I am tired, exhausted, feels like I barely slept a wink. I don’t know who wakes me, but I stumble up and down for a thirst-quenching drink, my slumber interrupted, four am or half past two, what can I do to simply sleep through? Do I need to beat my pillow to tire myself, until my knuckles turn raw red, or black and blue? I operate through days like a zombie, lidded eyes, confused and grumbling, wanting to get through the day, yet all I’ll do is sleep it away, I curl on the couch though heater’s on, I’m still freezing, come what may, hey? My rigid form encourages only stilted blood flow, if I moved more, I would warm up but I only want to curl up just so. My attitude easily becomes belligerent, my irritation arises, I need uninterrupted sleep, just once, goddamn it, how can I sort this problem out right??? © 2020 Lauren M. Hancock.
