The Night Before

The Night Before

Hey there folks!


Having trouble sleeping before the first day at the new job, which is not really a surprise because I can never sleep before big events. However, it is a pain in the ass so I decided to sit down and write to try and calm my mind and this is what came out. Enjoy!


Mind spinning in a multitude of directions

Awaiting this moment of significance

The search for calm fails

Because my body cannot relax for more than a moment

With each passing breath the anxiety rises

Storms of fear and tension grow in strength

Emotions swirl amidst a rising crescendo

Until I feel as if my mind can take no more

Finally awash in a satisfying denouement

The comfort of sheets and pillows beckons

Look at the clock, shit I have to be ready in an hour
