“Rocket Science” Poem of the Day (2022)

“Rocket Science”

By Ashley O’Hare

Sleeping has become rocket science-

I can’t figure it out.

I’ve run in circles,

chasing sleep deliriously.

In the mornings,

I’m far too boring.

My brain shut down

at a quarter till three.

This caffeine in my veins

is bringing me more pain.

I am not yet ready

to face the world.

My dreams are my solace.

Without them, everything is out of balance.

Without them, I have to suffer through

another day without you.
