turned off the lights at one, closed my eyes, yet my mind was still racing. it'd been a long day, and it didn't really end on a great note. tossed and turned to try to get comfortable. on my back, on my side, face down. restless. but i kept my eyes shut. i slipped in and out of sleep. short and forgotten dreams passing. i do not remember. they were neither pleasant nor bad. woke up with an itch on my leg. mosquito. it felt like i had already had a long restless night. was it almost dawn? was i going to have to get up soon? i checked my clock. no, it was just three fifteen. i wasn't even halfway there. tonight was sleepless. my heart anxious. sigh.
