Instead of Counting Sheep (a Poem for Day Eleven of PAD)

At the end of my long day I had a bit of Fireball and now I have lost my mind. This is such a fun prompt, too! I will come back to it. For now, I'm having trouble focusing, so a haiku it is.

The prompt for Day Eleven of PAD:

For today’s prompt, make a statement the title of your poem and either respond to or expand upon the title. Some example titles might include: “A Date Which Will Live in Infamy;” “Guns Don’t Kill People, I Do;” “This Is Your Brain on Drugs;” “Smile for the Camera,” and “Be Kind Rewind.” Of course, there’s an incredible number of possible titles; pick one and start poeming!

What Do You Dream Of?




Instead of Counting Sheep

Count on me to lie
awake wondering what you
dream of without me.

*****

I thought I would add in the other version, which some people on Poetic Asides preferred:

Instead of Counting Sheep
Count on me to lie
wakeful, 
wondering what you
dream of without me.
