Is there a point of no return?
Where I might as well
stay up till morning?

Will sleep come?
Or should I start
to work on something new?

All these ideas
Are swimming
Through my head.

I feel energized.

I’ll probably pay tomorrow,
with droopy eyelids
when I need to be alert.

Might as well just face it.
I really need to sleep.
Best start counting sheep.

What if I counted ships instead?
Sailing over the horizon
Giant sailing ships.
