Insomnia


Counting sheep,
Drinking warm milk,
Has no effects.
It can't be helped.

It's one,
It's two,
It's three A.M

I swear there are things,
Crawling in my bed!

Maybe it's all inside my head.

'Moon, please stay.'
'I want us to wed! '

'Too bad.'
It says,
'You should've stayed in bed.'

Now the Sun exclaims,
'Wake up, Sleepy Head! '
Cheery and high-pitched.

Grumpy,
I reply:
'I am, you son of a-'
*snoore*

    LMFAO! ! ! Oh this one is great. I love the comical sarcasm that flows throughout it. I know exactly what this is like cause I don't sleep much myself and when I do it's usually broken up to the point I might as well have not slept!

    The last line.............. Grumpy,
    I reply:
    'I am, you son of a-'

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
