The Zzzzz’s Are Elusive

Closed eyes with softish breath,

But still no Zzzz’s.

A person can force being awake,

a breath, love, living,

But sleep just can’t be coerced.

Once the mind latches on

To that single blip of thought,

Any hope of a restful slumber

Chuckles gently and finds something better to do.
