My body, she's tired, lamenting true rest
But my mind, she's relentless, and offers no less
Than a breif minute or two in an oblivious state
Then she's racing again, as if late for a date.
This battle, it seems, between flesh and thought
Is implacable in taste, rigidly taut.
Unyielding is this, the desire to shut down
And give in to a rest that is permanently sound.


 "Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." ~Henry David Thoreau

Interesting poem, almost describes an Timex watch takes a licken but keeps on ticking, funny how a mind can be racing when it time for the body to rest. I understand it, I know people who have this problem.

"Sleepless in Seatle Syndrome!"
Alas, I know too well what you mean!  Hope you find a snatch of peace!

Anne~
You have no idea how ironic your "Sleepless in Seattle" comment was.  Thanks for your comment, I can only hope.
