Last night

Last night I couldn’t sleep.

I don’t know why.

I tried sleeping on my side, on my front, on my back.

My arm hurt when I lay on my side.

My face felt swollen when I lay on my front.

And when I was on my back, I would be kept awake by the lights in the room.

Last night I couldn’t sleep.

Is it because I was watching TV and playing on my phone until late?

They say screen time disrupts your natural sleep patterns, so maybe that’s true.

Last night I couldn’t sleep. Although I know was asleep at some point because I was in Mongolia.

I’ve never been to Mongolia but I recognised it in my dream. And in my dream I was able to speak in Russian to someone who lived there.

Last night I couldn’t sleep.

I tried listening to the rain. The rain kept stopping.

Last night when I couldn’t sleep I wrote this poem in my head and it was brilliant.
