Needing Sleep

Eyes, feeling dry and
cracked, like riverbeds
in a drought.

Throat, tight and swollen,
tonsils of rubber brushing
the gag reflex.

Heart, racing like a
locomotive’s engine at
full, unfettered speed . . .

To enjoy the rest of this piece of creative writing, and more, please purchase Needing Sleep and other works (In My Words Vol. 2), available only on Amazon Kindle, for just $1.99!
