My insomnia often drives me crazy! A lot of people struggle falling asleep at night, and sometimes even the melatonin doesn't help. I wrote this during one of those nights. I figured I might as well do something useful, rather than stare at the ceiling.
This is also a great example of how I theme a lot of my poems. You'll probably notice as you read more, that I often personify certain concepts/acts/themes (such as sleep) in order to give it more grounding and relatability. I feel like it creates a clever twist while still conveying the bigger picture.
