Trying to Sleep

In closed eyes and slowing breath,

I lay myself to take a rest.

These lungs still broad from the gasping day,

In the dark stillness, my thoughts run astray.

I gorge myself on nocturnal notions,

Untangled ideas devoid of emotions.

The universe freezes,

Sound dies down,

it’s a lot less simple with no one around.

Tomorrow is unclear,

But that’s not now,

Not here.

I’m trying to sleep,

Wade into stillness

Counting sheep.

Body tranquil, forgetful of every ache,

It’s quiet and peaceful

Until daybreak
