poem about sleeplessness

insomnia got me drinking cups of coffee blinding seeking my favorite sleepless in chicago radio station
insomnia got me walking around in the early am in a blue funk wanting to slap the shit out of somebody
insomnia got me talking to imaginary characters who answer me back?
insomnia got me in a white jacket
strapped to the bed of a mental institution

insomnia got me tripping, flipping, and dripping wanting to rip the drywalling and slap the fuck out of insomnia
cause all i want to do is sleep

insomnia got me sleepwalking to my neighbors crib and i don't even remember kissing him silly as i crept into his bed last night.

insomnia got me calling the landlord on a daily basis with updates of more reports from the tenants right above my head.

all i want to do is sleep
i want more of my sleep until i can't fucking sleep no more.
tired of my eyes staying wide awake at 2, 3 and 4 am.

i crave my head to the pillow more and more because it seems like a long ass time since i have had some decent z's.

please insomnia give me a fucking break and stop breaking my back.

let me relax like i used to do.
let me be the rational girl and just smile and be okay.

cause right now, i want to rip your head off and stick you where the sun doesn't shine
(c) 2003 Pam Osbey
