you lack sleep

did you sleep well
did you get any sleep at all
or did three a.m. terrors
tear into you
as you tumbled through
the endless blue

do you ever get enough sleep
you’re always dragging your feet
through empty days
and routine haze

do you at least dream
dream good things
in a world where
you don’t stay up all night
and his face is the last sight
you see
before you
fall
into peaceful sleep
