Sleepless

Sleepless

Eyes weary 
body shattered 
Mind whirring 
thoughts mattered 
clock ticking 
Conscience pricking 
Turning over and over
Swap the pillow 
Kick off the cover 
Too hot then too cold 
When will sleep enfold 
Clock still ticking 
3am 4am 5am 
Still no sleep 
Another hour and I need to be up
close my eyes and fall into the deep .
Body relaxes .
Shrill noise awakes from slumber ,
Another five do I dare?
I drift off with out a care.
