Insomnia: A Poem

  1. Can't sleep tonight
  2. Don't know if I'm tired
  3. Stare through the blinds of my bedroom window
  4. Lights outside tell me the city is awake
  5. But the moon shines through the cracks
  6. And the man in the moon has heavy eyes deep with slumber
  7. "Sweet dreams," I tell the moon.
  8. "Sweet dreams," he says back.
  9. Then I count the sheep
  10. And sleep
