restless

there were days and there were nights that passed by- thinking i’d never make it

there were hours and minutes i watched ticking by- as if the clock would do a silly trick if i took my eyes off it

there were times i realized the ceiling too made funny shapes and animals- just like the clouds
spending so many restless nights wondering if the rabbit would escape the tiger.

my fingernails worn thin- can’t stop tapping them on this desk
my patience has faded
my mind going crazy

i’d lay there again listening to the dripping faucet- hoping it’d put me to sleep
the dogs chasing the cat from the bed- the jingles of their collars made music in the midst of night

maybe i’ll try counting sheep
but they get boring after awhile- i could mix it up and add some donkeys or something?
