Sleepless - Poem by Sander Shelnutt

Hey bed,
Hey clock,
Hey ceiling,

It's me, applying for another sleepless night


Poet's Notes about The Poem

Everybody knows the feeling of being annoyed over not falling into sleep due to alot of worrying, etc.

We roll over a milion times, we check the clock every second & stare at the ceiling.

    I too have trouble sleeping. It's because I'm so fantastic I have to
    keep getting up to look in the mirror and tell me how great I am.
    I am also the best poet in the world.
    A good poem by the way. (Report) Reply

    I know just what you mean. I stopped smoking two weeks ago.
    I'm finding it very hard sleeping at the min. A great poem. (Report) Reply
