Sleep Mas

I DON’T MUCH

Never Have … 

Know That I Should.

“Six Is My Under / Over Number.”

… An Extra Hour Would Be Divine, Dear Father.

 

SLEEP WHEN I’M GONE

Is My Gig … 

I Haven’t Convinced Myself

“A Slim Slice Of Sleep Depravation.”

… Is Ever Good.

 

SNOOZE YOU LOSE

Zzzzz … 

In Dreams

“Life Gets Real.”

… If But A Moment Of Bliss.

 

LA LA LAND

I’ve Walked Along Sunset Boulevard … 

“Stepped Over The Broken Dreams.”

Of Fallen Lives

… And, Spirit Shattered.

 

CATS & DOGS

I Love Watching Fluffy Purrs & Snorty Woof-Woof’s Sleep Away … 

They Do It Well In Baskets And Beds,

“Chubby Babies Sneezing And Wheezing, Too.”

… Fish, What’s Your Deal?

 

I’VE NODDED OFF

In Odd Places … 

I Was Caught Once By Sister I-Don’t-Remember-Her-Name.

“She Gave Me Unholy Side Eye …”

… And, The Stigma Of Shame.

 

I’M UP NOW

Way Before Dawn … 

Daisy, Dominique & Didi.

“Sleep, Darlings, Sleep.”

… Zzzzz.

    Michael, I hear you on the sleep issues all of my life. I wonder whether this is why we write? Another positive is I read a great many books throughout the night. Also a no no. I try to explain to my husband how my gas tank is never completely full. Or how I walk around in a fog. I find overall I have learned to accept it. If I fight it, it becomes a worse issue. Tremendous amount of advice, apps out there. I think some people are just wired differently. Now, the concept of Beauty Sleep? Don’t get me started. A witty post, as always:)

      I hear you. Who knows where some expressions start? The stupid ones seem to hang around forever. That’s tough about your second … I’ve always been a shitty sleeper. Wish I could. It’s unhealthy to get too little sleep.

      I sleep too much now by heading to bed early. Try to escape by shutting my eyes and travel to LaLaLand where I seem to have more control over my mind and outcomes. But that means I’m up early…which really I don’t mind. 🙂

      Probelm is, it doesn’t always work…Insomnia is alive and well. 😶
