When Sleep Finds Me , Not

Seconds drudgingly
tick off the clock
waiting to find minutes
that agonize the hours
spent in overwhelming
quiet of the night

eyes wide open
lost in thought
wondering about everything
except for sleep

the act of lying down
triggers a nightly
insomniatic episode
where everything
that didn’t hurt in the light
crashes the party
ready to fight

reliving all
of my yesterdays
while planning
tomorrows alteration

when sleep finds me, not
