Errant Sleep

Updated: Mar 19, 2021

I can't sleep.


Or to be clearer, my dreams have dispersed and replaced by the bright artificial glow of my mobile.


It's 5:04am and all is as quiet as can be in a city.


Sleepy warmth escapes with each tap on the screen.


Eyes refocus. Sleep seeps out of them.


I should go back and rest. I tell myself.


Illogically I think forcing myself to go back 'to it' will magically transport me in front of a door marked 'Sleep'.


I sigh and keep typing my floating thought.


If nothing else, I have this.


It wasn't a wasted glow.
