Awake Too Early

My relentless mind 

In perpetual motion 

Sleeping’s a challenge 

Awake against my will

Dreaming of dreaming 

Longing for slumber 

The machinery of my mind 

Psychological cogs churn and spin 

Whirring hum of my soul 


I’m not asleep

Night fell long ago
Yet sleep is avoiding me
I hear the highway

Oh sleep, I’ve requested your presence some time ago. Sigh…

Oh well, at least I can sleep in tomorrow.
