Insomnia

Elusive and fleeting,
Sleep tempts and taunts.
The digital numbers wink as I doze.
12:05
1:00
2:25
I drift off,
Meandering through a dream world
Like a child in the toy department, gazing all about in wonder
At the curiosities that surround me.
And before I sate my curiosity
The gentle chimes remind me
That the real world beckons.

In waking I dream of sleep.
