And yet another night

where sleep eludes me

I walk around the house

like a sleepwalking zombie

hoping that I find it

hiding in the corners

or that it may be around

trying to find me

But the house is empty

and tonight even more so than on other days

with no one here but me

floating everywhere

up and down

round and round

I countdown the hours to the morning

Hoping to rush through

But then again the more I rush

the slower I go

…..on yet another night

where sleep eludes me
