Common Sense Takes Flight - Poem by Barbara Haskell

It comes on every night,
common sense takes flight.
I don't want to go,
it scares me so!
I fear to succumb,
my mind goes numb.
That contraption might trap me,
I might not be able to flee!
It does not lend itself to feelings of peace,
for me, it holds no release.
What is it that I dread?
It's simply...my bed.
