Here is a poem written on the 28th of August year 2002. Read and learn why some people find it hard to sleep - and it is not about insomnia.
|I am bothered|
The dog barks unstoppably;
My head lies on the pillow
But my thoughts are wide awake
Its barkings sound like cries for succor
Wanting to be free from the chains
That grip its neck.
It expects its master's coming
In the hope that he will set it free
From that which binds its will
Yet, throughout the night
Exhaustion has embraced its throat
Its weightless sounds are null
And my thoughts have taken them in sleep.
