Insomniac nights

Nights are pregnant full of surprise

Too many stories jostling inside

Feeding from the single cord

In the expectant womb tucked inside

But the moment you, switch off lights

Lay in the bed for the night

They emerge slowly one by one

When everything else, has gone quite

Playing episodes new and old

One after another without respite

Close your eyes or keep them wide

Toss or turn, or stay still

Sleep won’t touch your tired eyes

Till you have gone through season five
