Giveth and Taketh Away – One-Liner Wednesday

Sleep is a cruel mistress; she gives to many but from others simply takes.


In other news, I’ve been up for 24 hours and counting…

(Or at least I was when I initially wrote this small post.)

Check out the original One-Liner Wednesday. (I will update link when able.)

My Lady Slumber

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?

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.

Couldn’t sleep last night until some unreasonable time in the morning. Still not very awake at the moment and I feel kind of…disconnected. This happens every now and then, sometimes more than others. It can been very tiring, but in the end, it’s just the way the world works for me and I’ve come to accept it. I try to work through it and around it and with it.

On the upside, I received an awesome email from my sister some point last night. It has made this morning all the better despite my lack of restorative sleep.

She had designed a new header for my blog. (grins)

She mentioned that this is ‘such a Martha thing to say.’ Which is pretty correct. When I’m tired or dizzy or confused (which is a lot) I can get pretty random.

(Like accidentally punching myself in the eye when I just meant to rub the sleepiness away.)

Layabouts – Day Twenty-Six

You sleep in bed all morning long,
Waiting till the last to join the throng.
You say you got to bed quite late,
And that is why the rest must wait.
So every five minutes you hit the snooze
Because your sleep you don’t want to lose.
 
Well that will change sometime soon
Because you see, we have a boon.
You shall awake because it’s late
And I shall not continue to wait;
 
Wake up!

Written in honor of my sister’s kids every morning that they don’t have school. They’d sleep until 1:00 pm if I let them. The picture is of my cat, Usako.
