“I’ve always envied people who sleep easily. Their brains must be cleaner, the floorboards of the skull well swept, all the little monsters closed up in a steamer trunk at the foot of the bed.”
― David Benioff, City of Thieves
Sleep eludes me.
It has for the last 14 months…
I can count on one hand the nights that I slept more than four hours straight in that time period.
The brain churns incessantly.
Dreams/nightmares interrupt and then I am up for the day.
It could be worse though…
I could run out of ways to stay awake.
The newest is horseradish.
Horseradish? You ask?
Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it…
Heat, burn, all the way down
– just like Jagermeister but the burn lasts longer.
Just a spoon–full wakes up the senses, the brain cells, everything from top to bottom.
My new go–to pick me up in the middle of the day.
That, and Alter Bridge full bore,
just to stay awake.
Maybe, just maybe, sleep will be my friend tonight…
