Sleepless

The clock on the wall

Stares at me, blank faced,

Quietly judging me as

The night I waste

Not sleeping

.

Tick, tick, tick

Like a finger wagging

Or the tisk-tisk

Of one who is nagging

I’m still not sleeping

.

Bells and chimes

Tormenting proclamations

It’s one, it’s three, it’s five

Increasing my frustration

As I can’t sleep

.

Hands wave and clap

Past minute and hour

Mocking me, laughing

While I lay here and glower

About the not sleeping

.

Only the slow glow

Of the approaching day

Seems to see how tired I am

And my worries allays

So I can sleep
