For me  

Sleep is like a dead plant waiting for the warmth of the sun

During a dark wintry night.

Always waiting 

To be brought back alive,

But the digits never tick by.

Laying awake 

Staring at my ceiling.

Waiting for the morning sky,

To live yet another day

Of dreading the night. 

Wondering if I even really live.
