Insomnia

Let’s start the week with a poem.

The pressure is building
behind my eyes
and i wonder
if tonight
will be
yet another sleepless night
filled
with vivid dreams
I cannot remember
but awaken from
with a haunted feeling
just the same. . .

waking at three seventeen yet again
my mind racing, ready to arise
my body still aching
for rest.

I’ve prayed to their gods
for peace and silence
but my prayers,
as always,
go unanswered.
so I pray to their god’s no longer
I opt for an earthly solution
and sip the chamomille that
has so often
heavied my eyelids
and i pray to the earth gods
that their remedy
is more effective.

I slid under the covers
and let the effects
of the flowers
wash over me
and am lulled
into somnolence
by the steady purr
of the cat
by my feet.
