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.

Confide in,

stay up with me.

Fight this insomnia,

who knows,

some day

maybe we’ll get our crowns back.

Claim sleep for our own.
