Curtain Sky

half-moon
I've had enough
back and forth
and grasping
curtain sky
open wide
but dreaming
is not sight

For Sanaa's prompt at Real Toads

I can certainly relate to this kind of frustration with my body's inability to sleep.

I spend a lot of time with that pulled curtain night sky.

There is a weariness in this poem which resounds perfectly
