Embedded In Sleeplessness (Limerick)

Embedded In Sleeplessness (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Insomnia blankets my night.
Slumber teases — declines to alight.
I toss and I turn
In my bed, as I yearn
For release from my sleep-deprived plight.

(Prompted by Theme Thursday’s “beds.”)

    Oh yes, been there many a long and weary night. You summed it up perfectly *smile*

    “insomnia blankets”
    “slumber teases”
    A lively night and a catchy limerick!

  3. It’s the limericks that do it – they churn though my mind. Sometimes I can get up and write them down and that gives my brain permission to shut down.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments, everyone. And J Cosmo, I too am haunted by limericks, but even writing them down doesn’t help shut down my brain. :)
