Nothing Like a Nice, Hot Coffee (to start the day at 1pm)

Sleepwalking through life,

Waltzing around at 3am,

Up and down the hallways at home,

Then sleeping in the day!

Bloody Vampire fangs,

And raging hunger pangs at night!

Maybe I’m pregnant?

Is it bed-time yet?!

Can’t sleep, not enough action,

Cruising by the beach,

What time is it right now?

Is anyone awake?

Has there been an apocalypse -

whilst I was in bed?!

Sleepily snoozing,

So much time losing,

Now, to Microwave my mug of water,

The kettle is broken and

So is my internal alarm clock,

Put on my socks,

Have brekkie, and a hot black coffee,

And watch the sun go down.

    Yep, been there 😂. I just embrace it, go with the flow and chill. There’s something so liberating about being the only one up, when everyone else is sleeping and the world is quiet 😊

    I don't drink coffee, but I am a night owl. So I can relate. Nice poem!
