School Night (a poem)

School Night
Written March 1st, 2011

I have found the perfect spot
That melts me into the mattress
I am perfectly comfortable
Finally
I start to drift to sleep

Then, as I am on the edge
The brink
of dreams
A new thought enters
Something I have not yet considered

I am wide awake again
This new thought
My new focus
Distracting me
From the rest I sought

Suddenly my new wakefullness
Makes me more aware
Of my body
Seperate being from the mattress
We are no longer the perfect pair

So I toss
I turn
I flip
I adjust
Till I find a better spot

Close my eyes
My mind goes blank
Down into oblivion I sink
I am on the edge of dreams
The brink...

A new thought enters
Something I have not yet considered
This new focus
Distracting me
The cycle starts again
