I've been tossing and turning lately due to some bad scheduling at work. I'm being rotated in night and day shifts, so my sleep cycle is a little messed up. This is basically a bit of how I've been feeling the past few days.

12/08/2013 (Sunday)- Insomnia
I’ve been waiting for Sleep to come home the past few nights, each appearance coming later and later as I lay awake. Night sounds and white noise filling the silent lonely room.
Counting. Up and down of sheep, and flying pigs. I checked the clock, worried that Sleep may have forgotten that I needed her in bed with me. 4 a.m. Almost time for work, and still she isn’t home in bed with me. An empty space.
All I wanted was a handful of stardust, and pastel-colored dreams.
I stayed up a little longer waiting.
