The one night you try to sleep early.
The night before you have to get up early.
You even did some sleepy time yoga.
You made sure you did not have any caffeine after 12 noon.
You had a bath.
You kept the TV off.
You're in a strange bed.
In a hotel.
Even with your blankie there, it happens.
Your Sleep disappeared.
It just vanished.
One minute it was right there, within reach.
The next moment, gone.
And here you are, drawing, writing, reading some more.
Hoping Sleep would somehow come crawling back.
And soon, not at 3am…
