A kick to my backside,
A punch to my face.
That's my daughter claiming her sleeping space.
I have no broken bones or teeth by God's grace.
I learned to say goodbye to my sleeping days.
My smartphone causes a distraction.
I end up sleeping late.
The mosquitoes find me delicious.
Resigned to a sleepless fate.
Then, the TV blares on as my husband watches a cricket match.
The commentator is ecstatic as our fielders or bowlers take a catch.
Sometimes, a late night movie, or my husband's snores.
Keep me awake for some time.
Despite being tired of the domestic chores.
When I am finally asleep, I receive a message or a call at night.
Not to mention the trips to the toilet where the cockroaches give me a fright.
Then, my idiotic brain, activates unwanted thought.
How I missed my chance to freedom!
How I got married to a despot!
How my crazy decision to move to this hell of a place!
How I would love to punish the person I despise in countless ways !
I am too tired to carry on my mindless ranting.
Going to try meditation and prayer chanting.
The moment, when I close my eyes, I hear the doorbell ring.
I open it only to find a salesman canvassing.
I send him away after turning him down.
It's useless to try and meditate as I end up with a frown.
A good night's sleep and peace of mind are a human's great treasures.
A dreamless sleep with no disturbance is indeed a great pleasure.
My eyes are drooping slowly now.
And I wish to take a small nap.
But it's already morning, I can't afford to sleep.
Probably, I will splash my face with water from the tap.
