Archive for the ‘Menopausal and tired’ Category

In bed and practically dead.
Still, insane thoughts creep through my head.
Why can’t my mind fall asleep with my body?
And why must I keep getting up to go potty?
I’m hot, I’m cold, can I pay all the bills?
Shoot, I was sweating and now I have chills.
It sucks to be menopausal and poor.
But I love and am loved so I don’t need much more.
Please, someone, hypnotize me to sleep.
I need the kind that is dreamy and deep.
I worry, I stress, and I reminisce
About paychecks and travel and people I miss.
About muscles and tendons and bones that worked well.
About ankles and knees that never would swell.
Still, I’m here and my kids make me smile and beam.
So all I need now is some sleep and a dream.
