Toothache Twilight

Sometimes can’t help but think
These circular thoughts
Swirl and rebound
Each feeds each other
Grow tired
Slow and stop
Traverse of high to low
Normal to be this exhausted?
Firm softness
Bed and pillow
Semi darkness sirens call
Always this background hum
Feeling the approaching wave
Too late to stop it
And the sudden realization
The surfacing of the thought winner
The chum frenzy
Oh, right
That explains it
That behavior switch
That old liar
Wish you’d stayed away

      It’s already here. I’m sleeping more recently, which is a good thing

        Being able to sleep is a great thing. I can always tell when I am emotionally out of whack as it is difficult to sleep for more than a few hours at a time.

          For me it’s not sleeping when I’m tired and really pushing how long I stay awake. And finding it extremely difficult to do anything other than veg or sleep

            That makes sense. When I am really down my sleep schedule gets all out of whack too….too much tv time, veg time, and not enough actual sleep.
