    No Sleep

    It seems things never seem to be settled before I tuck myself between the sheets. I worry about what cup I left unwashed, if the doors are locked, if I blew out the candle. I worry about what my husband did that day, or who. I worry about what bill comes up next and if I mailed...

    I don't know what it is.

    Even if I am so tired, and I know I need to get some sleep, if I have a lot on my mind, the hampster wheel just keeps on spinning!

    Every Night

    I analyze everything, perhaps over analyze. I think all the time at night and then I don't sleep and this will go on for days at a time-insomnia. I really enjoy sleeping, but it's hard for me not to think.
