Sleep Amnesia


Can’t sleep 

Can’t catch a wink

Shut-eye is difficult when eyes are open

2AM poetry is the best Idea yet

This isn’t a Haiku is it?


It went on a bit too long

Plus, I think it has too many, uh…

What are those things called?

Counting Sleep (I mean sheep)

1 sheep, 2 sheep, 3 sheep πŸ‘ 

Oh look, one jumped over the moon πŸŒ™

Rock-a-bye baby 🎸 

On a tree top

Because this makes so much sense 

And of course the bow would break πŸ™„ 

Why are lullabies so true to life?

Moms sure prepare you for the real world early.  🌎

I didn’t think insomnia was possible 

Until it was my lot 

I can’t say I enjoy it much 

It’s an aggravating plot 

Wide awake at witching hour 

My brain has thunk a lot 

Some sleep would be a dandy thing 

But sleep my body’s forgot. 

Insomnia: sleep amnesia

  1. Tina, even when you are sleep-deprived, your poetry is eye-opening and makes me smile. 😊
    Blessings, may your sleep tonight be restful and peaceful. Love and cyberhugs! πŸ’—πŸ¦‹πŸ™πŸŒΊ


    1. I don’t think saying ‘good is the right response. No, that definitely isn’t good. But glad I’m not alone. It helps when people can relate. πŸ™‚ I hope you get some sleep. πŸ’€
