Sleepless In San Jose

— Lesa Medley

Another long night
cold, dark and lonely
I’m so very tired
yet sleep is elusive
I’m restless
mind bustling, racing
busy as Santana Row
early on a summer evening
tossing, turning
too much on my heart
memories and emotions
keep swirling
and churning
through my head
like so many electric currents
sparking, not connecting
pulsing erratically
with too many thoughts
weighing me down
winding me up…

I can’t find the off switch.

One thought on “Sleepless In San Jose

  1. Love the descriptive words describing feelings. Memories and emotions keep swirling and churning through my head like so many electric currents sparking, not connecting pulsing erratically……Not a peaceful place…….
