“I’ve always envied people who sleep easily.” If I ever get one thing to have as a superpower, I’d surely want to go for sleep. Sleep, that at least let me be on the bed for 8-10 hours.
Earlier while I was in school and college, I used to think that I don’t get much sleep because I don’t much of anything that breaks my bone to let me sleep. I was always in a chill mode. An smart doer.
But when I shifted to Mumbai, and started working for 10-12 hours a day, and still struggled to sleep, I understood that there’s something really serious with my sleeping patterns.
I don’t get 8-10 hours of sleep. I only sleep for 5-7 hours out of 24 hours. I don’t know how my body operates.
Also, I’d not mention it’s because of any over-thinking, stress, or anything of that sort. It’s just what I do in the day light satisfies my stomach, and family; what I do at midnight satisfy my soul.
In today’s prompt number #19, I got this opportunity to write about my sleeping patterns. Just pray that I get a good sleep tonight, as I’m writing this at midnight. And I just now crafted this poem.
I remember the nights
When I stay all night late
Writing, thinking, introspection
I do everything before
I wake up in the morning by eight.
I cannot even bother to look at the time,
My words are never meant to rhyme.
Oh dear words, you’re raw and naked,
I love how the flow articulates.
They tell me, close your eyes
And you may get your sleep.
Little did they know,
My dreams are so big
That they cannot let me sleep.
I won’t say my body isn’t tired
But my mind is proactive,
I wish I could love to be on bed for a while,
I wish my bed was attractive.
I don’t seek anything to eat
Nor do I need any tea.
Even without having anything,
I feel the depth of my inner devotee.
To stay up till midnight,
You do come across many nymphomaniac,
But least interested in entertainment them,
I love to call myself an insomniac.
(Also, I want to thank you everyone for being such a supportive readers of my work. I’ve completed 6 years with WordPress today, and I’m elated to express my gratitude to each one of you who reads, comments, and make me a better person each day.)
