Posts Tagged ‘Menopause’

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.
