Pulling at the Mattress

As I sleep
Unaware
The dreams turn
To worries
Frets
Stresses
Close to home
And far away
They slip into my brain
Pulling sleep away
As if tugging my mattress out on the front lawn
To await the trash man

No use going after it
I won't get back to sleep.

  1. Dreams are really wishes in disguise. So says Cinderella, not me.

  2. Yep. That's what my life has been like the last seven months. Fun, huh?
