Twilight and Pixie Dust

I have stumbled across a new passion: writing. It is proving to be insightful and rewarding.

Don't Lost Hope, Nor Be Sad

Don't Lost Hope, Nor Be Sad

I’m so tired.
So fatigued.
Losing clarity of thought.
Taking longer to write.

What’s going on?
Why do I feel so awful?
When will I sleep fully again?
How does the cycle stop?

The anxiety is immense.
The achy muscles.
The twitching and restlessness.
Tossing and turning.

Foggy brain.
Sluggish, slow movements.
No energy.
No excitement.

Please, sleep, come back to me.
I need you badly, and you need me.
Sing to me sweet songs and lullabies.
I look forward to meeting up with you real soon.

When tonight comes and all is quiet,
Sneak into me and I will welcome you as my pilot.
Sprinkle me with pixie dust and we’ll fly over towns and cities like Peter Pan.
“Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning!”

Reference and quote to Peter Pan from: J. M. Barrie, Author, Scottish novelist and playwright, best remembered as the creator of Peter Pan.
