Exhausted: Ragtag Daily Prompt

Can’t Sleep

At night I lie sleepless looking at the ceiling 
wondering what it is that keeps me awake. 

There haven’t been any storms near me 
no fires, no earthquakes.  

And when I awaken in the morn  
exhausted from my night
my head is pounding 
my lids are heavy 
my throat is dry 
my body doesn’t want to move.  

At night I lie awake looking at the ceiling 
wondering if I will fall asleep soon. 

I think of the stars, of God, and of love 
And wonder who really lives on the moon.
