 83. Sleep Deprived
There's lots
Of reasons
It happens,
To me
Or anyone
Else.

But today
The end of
The semester crunch
Is on,
And the pressure
To perform well
Is high.

I'm like a little kid
Who doesn't want
To miss a thing,
Not today
Not tomorrow
Not ever,
And so
One day runs
Into another
And sleep
Becomes more
Like naps,
And band aids
Than the real
Rest
My body
Is craving.

Its bad
When you are
In rehearsal
Reciting lines
And you loose
Consciousness
In the middle
Of your own line…
Then you have
To make time
For sleep,
Before you
Hurt somebody,
But it's too late
Because obviously
You're hurting
Yourself,
Or in this
Instance,
Myself.

I can't tell
If the endorphins
Are from lack
Of sleep
Or what I did
Instead of sleep.

Sometimes
It's hard to discern
If I should sleep
Or participate
In life…
I'm sure
I'm not the only
One
Facing this
Dilemma.

Two more weeks
Till the end
Of the semester
And the beginning
Of the rest
Of my life,
And I just
Need
To
Get
Through
This.

Then I promise
My body
We will sleep
As much
As we
Want
Or need…

But until then…
I will be
A little
Sleep deprived.
