Chocolate and Herb Infused Imsomnia

Ever close your eyes
Ever stop and listen
Ever feel alive
And you’ve nothing missing
You don’t need a reason
Let the day go on and on
~ Enya, Wild Child lyrics

Dear Imsomnia,
I wish I could wish you away with a snap of my fingers, or drown you in a river of champagne, or set you a-sailing on the back of a yellow rubber ducky.

The minutes tick on, and you grow in my mind – a mountain reaching far beyond the highest storm clouds.

I am going to conquer you. Someday soon.

Even if meanwhile I have to bake a cake on tiptoe while my flatmates frolic in Dreamland.

Sincerely,
me
