Let Me Sleep.

It’s been a year now,

That the Pandemic had begun.

I know, I know,

100 years ago, as well, there had been one.

.

But in this fast paced era of ours,

Where we move around like *dodge-em cars.

I’d like to hit the pause button,

Can’t you hear me weep?

Can my family quieten down,

And just let me sleep!

.

Online schooling is taking it’s toll.

Dear teachers, you are pure gold.

Husband is on a break,

He is at home all day,

When will the kids disappear ?

Leave the nest, fly away.

.

Okay now I will end this rant.

I hope the Higher Powers grant me what I want.

A nice warm blanket and to my bed I must be glued.

And One Hundred Years Of Solitude.

.

*Dodge-em cars: At amusement parks, there are miniature cars thar people ride and have fun going around in a rink, trying to bang into the next car, in the mean-time looking really awkward and not following a path.

  1. I live for the periods of time when the husband and the son are out together, and I get to be alone at home. I don’t really get to sleep, but how I love that silence. I love them to the moon but a girl needs her alone time. What you wrote really connected with me. πŸ₯°
