Sleep Hates Me
I think sleep really hates me. I don’t know why. I can’t think of any reason for sleep to be mad at me. Sleep and I have had a lot of great times together. Now, it’s as if we barely know each other. I call on sleep and invite sleep every chance I get, but sleep doesn’t respond. I hope and pray for sleep every night, but sleep refuses to acknowledge me. I think back and try to figure out where we went wrong and I just don’t know. Sleep used to be so good to me and now sleep hardly comes around. When we do get together, it’s not for very long. I beg sleep to stay, at least one whole night, but, no, sleep has other plans. I try to entice sleep with melatonin among other things I thought would help set the mood, but, no success. I’ve tried to seduce sleep with soft music and scented candles, but sleep resists all my efforts. I don’t know what else to do to get sleep back. I miss sleep so much, my eyes hurt from looking for sleep for long periods of time and my head aches and my body wants to shut down but my brain won’t allow it unless sleep calmly puts my mind at ease and assures my brain that it’s ok. Otherwise, we just can’t be. Please sleep, come back to me!!!
