Lack of Sleep by Blair Gaulton

Lack of Sleep
The anvil hits;
awareness shifts.
For a moment lost;
that is the cost;
of a lack of sleep.

Another Blood Sugar Battle by Blair Gaulton

Another Blood Sugar Battle
Most of this night
I am awake
Not insomnia or caffeine
nor too much thought or insulin
are the cause
When my blood sugar
does not go up enough
in spite of countermeasures
like tonight
I can lie down but not sleep
Only when a certain level is reached
does tiredness and sleep come
then my waiting is done.
