(7) Sleep, Where Are Thou Tonight?

(7) Sleep, Where Are Thou Tonight?

A Poem by Chris Smith Welshpoetcs

Sleep, where are thou tonight?
When I need thee the most
Yon dreams desert thy sight
I am only a crumbled ghost

Come take me to fabled land
Where mine eyes may rest
Sleep, take with thy loving hand
Where yonder reaches I know best

But, alas, you still abandon me
This mind cursed you too much
This darkest night brings misery
Brings it forth, restless of such

Sleep, where are thou tonight?
When I need thee the most
Sleep, please come hold me tight
Let ye join me in slumbers boast

your description brings the empathetic response from the reader immediately~ I have the opposite problem~ my body simply shuts down at a point in the evening~ and I sleep like the dead~ =)~

It does suck when you tire and cannot find sleep... I suffer from mania, and when my body is coming down, but my brain won't shut off, I long for sleep so bad to say the least...

Nice Expression of Exhaustion!
RLG,
