dVerse Quadrille Monday – I Cannot Sleep

Sarah is today’s host for dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Sarah says:
Well, tonight we’re quadrilling, and, yes – sleep is the word. You can use any variant you like – sleep, asleep, sleeping, sleepy… – just so long as your poem is 44 words long and contains that elusive sleep word.

There’s a wrinkle in the sheet
I cannot sleep
My arm weighs too much
I cannot sleep
My back is aching
I cannot sleep
My pillow’s uncomfortable
I cannot sleep
My jaw is locking
I cannot sleep
I see the sunrise
I cannot sleep
