Fight for Sleep
Ashley

I.

At night I toss and turn without warrant,
And pray for sleep to come in a violent torrent.
But he never does, an aloof lover,
With mystical secrets I cannot discover.
Why, O, why does he find me so abhorrent?

II.

Once, I prayed for Sleep to love me,
To stroke my hair and covet me.
Now, he never leaves my side,
No matter where I run or hide,
He finds me out and punishes me accordingly.
