Sofa sucker

The sofa cushions

Are calling me

Again.

They have my name,

They know my weakness-

A total lack of

Sleep

And a false

Hope

Of a “short nap”

So that

I can

Wake up

And do a little more

Work

As the family

Sleeps

Quietly-

With a few

Snorts and grunts

And burps

From the other rooms.

In the dark

Of night,

While they rest,

I tap away

At the keys,

In the soft glow

Of my laptop-

Yearning

To hold them

Again-

Not worrying about deadlines

And print dates,

Or time

At all.
