The Creature Inside
Last night my friends sent me a text in jest
(A humorous meme of Shrek in his swamp)
But I could not laugh as hard as the rest
Of them because my alertness was romped
By the creature inside me that craves sleep
Is she a fiend or is she my old friend,
Replenishing my energy to keep
Up with all that I wish my time to spend?
The real problem is that I have no choice
When the creature calls me, I have to go
No matter where I am, I lose my voice
Consciousness reaches a steady plateau
Hopefully friends can forgive me this fault
Eight Thirty approaches and I must halt.
I fell asleep at 9pm last night, after having planned time to work on my sonnet. Consequently, I got up at 6:15am because that's when I feel more alert. I legitimately received this meme in a group text with my friends:
I felt inspired because everyone else in the group had already responded. Also, this seriously happens all of the time. I fall asleep at parties, at restaurants, at movies, and at family events. I can't seem to figure it out. I don't do well late at night, and I can much easier get up early in the morning.
