Sleep is reigned
by toddlers and old people.
The former don’t even appreciate it,
and the latter doze off during TV ads.
I slept for four hours the other day,
then for what felt like six minutes,
then for a full thirteen hours
after I pulled an all-nighter.
I don’t remember dreaming,
Though I mostly dream in the Awake hours,
I’m not expecting a fairytale,
I’d just like someone to talk to.
stay up with me.
Fight this insomnia,
maybe we’ll get our crowns back.
Claim sleep for our own.
