Why You Slept In…

You did not mean to.

You went to bed late;

Though you prepared for it earlier than usual

You dreamed too much.

But you do not remember them —

You were tired before you fell asleep

You entered REM too late!

Wait? Are we suppose to remember when we enter that state? I cannot remember. Does that mean I never entered it?

You have too much to do tomorrow;

And you know you have to get it done

So, you spent the night thinking about how it will get it done
I think too much, in general.

I thought I got enough sleep until my alarm told me otherwise.

I slept good. I just need an extra shot of espresso today.

And tomorrow.

I won’t sleep tonight either.

I am not used to that much coffee. It will disrupt my REM.

Wait —
