24

I had a friend
who used to say
that sleep is for the weak.

I guess I’m strong,
as it never comes
easily to me,
even when it should.

It’s a guest that’s
often easy to avoid
and never catches me
off guard.

Today I hope
for dreamless sleep,
for only then
I truly rest.

As dreams are often
quite alive
and full of colour
in my nights.

  1. Aaah Vilnius, one of my favorite cities, though I only spent a week on Lithuanian soil, got the taste for the art of Curlionis, and the Hill of the Crosses showed up in a piece of creative writing I did at school last semester. Good luck in the marathon.
