My but how you make me weak!
I don’t know whether to laugh aloud or
Shout my sorrows with a streak.
The absurdity of this situation
Really brings a groan to my lips.
Even should I work to exhaustion,
Still you leave me breathless and
Sobbing for just one hour of sleep.
Why have you deserted me, My Lady Slumber?
Written for this week’s Three Word Wednesday prompt:
Also, because I have run out of my sleeping medicine and am currently unable to refill. This is not going to be pretty…
Expect sleep-deprived insanity to show up often here.
EDIT: Oops, just realized I already did this specific prompt a few weeks ago… Ah well, still leaving this up. (See what I mean about the sleep-deprivation?)
Ignore previous edit. I’m just a chicken with it’s head cut off.
