When insomnia comes to call (a poem)

After a night of less-than-restful slumber…

When insomnia comes to call
I resist
I try to go back to sleep
but she insists

When insomnia comes to call
moments crawl
but the clock keeps on ticking
despite it all

She is persistent
She is a drain
She knows no compassion
She knows no pain

When insomnia comes to call
morning’s late
It will come on its own time
I’ll have to wait
