The elusive sleep!

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “stick.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Stick a fork in me and call me done

I’m in a lot of turmoil

I feel so numb

No sleep tonight

I keep on trying

With all my might

I am fighting a losing battle

I might as well say good morning

Make coffee

Pull back my curtains

Let the sun shine in

Why is it so hard to get good rest

I must be doing something wrong

I can never pass the test

Sleep always seems to elude me

I will sleep for 1 hour

Then boom, I’m awake

Alls I gotta say is

For fuck sake!

  1. I do know that problem. It might be, though, that you have early symptoms of menopause, and your hormones are playing up. That was my problem, and the doctors didn’t pick it up because I had no hot flushes. But that was the reason why I could never sleep, and the mental health solutions didn’t help. Also, it got better for me when I simply didn’t care anymore if I had slept or not. I thought: “It’ll be enough no matter how much sleep I have”, and then did something I enjoyed to use the extra time well. Even though sometimes it still gets me. Too many bad thoughts when you can’t sleep at night 😦 Hope you find your perfect solution. Take care 🙂
