#NaPoWriMo | Day 3 | Sleep

in the last few years,
i have skipped too much sleep
over the hustle of reaching for the stars

not much feels good enough to forgo sleep now
an unsettling feeling is starting to settle
maybe i have indeed come sufficiently far

i don’t evade sleep to work anymore
rest is important, or so i have been told
multiple times, over the years
i guess i am starting to listen now

however, this comfort feels borrowed
even stolen sometimes,
for anxiety keeps my awake anyway
as brain buzzes with why, when, how

i miss standing sleepish in a crowded train
i miss running about with a purpose insane
i miss having an urge so strong, a dream too big
maybe i am gonna rest till i find THAT next gig
