Give Me Sleep or Give Me A Nightstand

Throb-bing, THROB-bing,

A deafening heartbeat in my head,

Some pains are negligible,

Others, tolerable,

This one must be the unbearble kind,

Always there when I least expect it,

Hues dampen in my vision,

Like a broken dimmer,

Quick flickers like a short in the wire,

I wish it would stop,

I wish I could sleep peacefully,

The tylenol is too far away to think about,

Suddenly I wish I had bought a bedside table.

This is a really good poem, I especially like the title.
