Sleepless Haikus

I’m imagining

Myself in love once again.

Wouldn’t that be great?


Sleep has become scarce

I savor when I have it

And dread when I don’t


I know my body

Throws protests against my mind

When I think this way


Would lying in bed

Be nicer if you were here

Tightly in my arms?


I doubt he loves me

But what if he really does?

What will my heart do?


Constantly seeing

Your image everywhere,

Does that count as love?


I would let my bed

Absorb my body fully

In exchange for rest.


“Drink water, it’s good”

But now I feel terrible

My body rejects it.


Sleep, love, and water

My mind has them on repeat

Hindering my rest.
