Lost Sleep

insomnia

I can’t find my

sleep.

I might have left it behind the washing up

or underneath the pile of

worrying

about a teenage daughter soon to be gone

to uni.

I’ve looked for it, searched high and low…

The sofa, my bed, the seat of my car.

Nowhere to be found yet.

One o’clock in the morning and I suddenly have a feeling

I left it

amongst the nightmares.

I might prefer that it stays

lost

after all.
