It's so early, or maybe it's late. I'm not sure. I just know I'm tired.

That Tricky Sandman

by genaervin


Master of all who have fallen prey to its grasp.

It eludes me.

It teases my senses.

No recharge for you tonight.

I could be doing something else with this time.

But without sleep, I'll never be able to focus on them.

Perhaps I'll get some sleep tomorrow.

Wait. It already is tomorrow?

I guess that elusive sandman didn't miss me afterall.

Neat idea! It was a bit confusing but in the end I got the meaning. Sleep is a very complex thing.
