The sleeper

sleep dances
elusive in the moonlight
just beyond my reach
while a hundred small aches
remind me of the passing years
frustration drives me from my bed
padding barefoot
through the moonlit house
in search of anything
to break the turning tossing pattern
of my nights
the perfect sleeper
sleeps no more
