and so they say
staring at a screen late at night
keeps you up, watching the minutes and hours
pass by on the brightly lit alarm clock at the side of the bed.
I watch every one, keeping my eyes open and
wondering why each moment
seems endless and my husband
snores gently on my side.
they say not to stare at
screens late at night
count sheep with your eyes closed shut
boredom helps one sleep
turn off the screen
turn off life's worries and
