Awake

I should be asleep, but I'm not. My meds mostly have the insomnia under control these days, but only mostly. So, there are nights like tonight. Mornings like this morning. I have to take the Ambien, which I try hard not to take. I was on it for too long, and it does unpleasant things to my mood the next day.

But soon the sky will be growing light Outside.

I thought about writing that poem I need to have written by the end of June, as a thank-you to all the people who chipped in on Spooky's birthday present. But that seems like it would only carry me still farther from sleep.

Anyway...back to bed, to try again. I'm typing badly. That's a good sign.
