It’s been four days
And I’ve gotten no sleep
My eyes itch
My arms hurt
And my legs ache like I ran a marathon
I’ve tried meditation
And my chamomile tea has failed me
is not new to me
but this is the first time
it’s gone on for this long
I almost drifted off tonight
and I was happy
that I was finally going to get some rest
but something brought me back
I’ve searched my mind
to figure out if something is bugging me
I’ve said affirmations I created for this specific purpose
I even moved bedtime forward to two hours earlier
Tossing and turning are getting boring
So I will sit upright
Stare at the ceiling
And look for a pill
If I can’t take it anymore

Wow, how do you cope? this only happens to me sometimes but this time around it went on longer than usual. I’m glad I’m sleeping well now.
Not very well but I like to write to help with the stress.
beautiful poem. I hope the bug is out and wish for a sweet sleep. Important to resolve mind before it disturbs the sleep.
Thank you, yes all is well now.
