dear mister sandman

I cannot stand staring at the dark, fuzzy shadows in my room any longer. This is the worst. I've been trying to sleep for the past four hours. I've tried reading, I've tried clearing my mind and focusing all of my energy on nothingness (a method I used as a child while restlessly awaiting Christmas morning to arrive), I've tried getting up and laying back down again. Nothing works, even though I am completely exhausted and still trying to recover from a rather defeating bout with the flu (I truly felt like death on Tuesday). So now I am clicking through the Nasa images database, hoping that pouring myself over the mysteries of the nighttime skies will lure my mind into a dreamy, heavy, much needed sleep.
