Musings of the Bleary-Eyed
Heidi Johnson


Oh, Sweet Sleep
Why must you flee so swiftly?
Scarcely do I close my eyes
and dreams begin to dance
when rudely I am shaken from my blissful slumber
As day breaks yet again
Cursed alarm begins to chime
demanding that I wake
Glorious caffeinous nectar
coursing through my veins
maintains the facade of living
’til twilight comes again.
