Why does insomnia haunt me tonight?

Couldn’t I see just a few zzzzs

The sheets are smooth

The blankets warm

No sounds or rustles out of the norm

I toss and turn wishing for a snore

Instead my mind wants to race some more

Why is this precious thing I seek

So desperately far out of reach?

The night caresses soothingly

I wait to feel my drowsy lids

Yet here I sit

Not knowing when

Yet sure to slumber

Just not too soon
