"I" Is For "Insomnia" (ABC Wednesday Meme)

Photo and Poem by Gigi Ann
O' Sweet Sleep Where Art Thou?
I'm lying here waiting for you.
Please come home,
I'm longing for you.
Why did you leave me here all alone?
What did I do to make you leave me?
Please, come back to me
Sweet Sleep.
I'm longing for you
To wrap your soft quiet 
Arms around me and
Make the Shadows of My Mind
Be Still...

One morning around 3:00 am, I crawled out of bed and wrote this little 'ode' to "Insomnia".
