Day 16 National Poetry Writing Month – Like a thief…

Some days, like today,

sleep sneaks up on me

and weaves a chilling charm.

It catches me up unawares in a mist of oblivion

that slows down time,

fogs reality

and leads me into darkness.

Like a thief it steals my consciousness

and my energy.

Like some vampire spirit

it sucks me dry

and I have to fight my way back

to the land of the living.

It eats the hours with its voracious appetite 

leaving me disoriented and drained

and mourning wasted opportunity.

I stumble back into my daily dimension of the mundane.
