when i cannot sleep

when i cannot sleep
i lay with my legs up against a wall
and my back flat on the floor
somehow the force of gravity
or some thing like that
causes your eyelids to flop closed
and your mind to relax
spread out
if you like
and become simple again
eventually this feeling flows all through your body
and you drift
into a sleepy kind of trance
where you are conscious enough
only to slip your legs
down the wall
and under your sheets
cold from the crispness of the wall
and the lack of blood
or some thing like that
