Sleep, Removed

I can stand all night
At my hip-high desk
Tapping this keyboard
Facebook requests
Whilst my family slumbers
Under duvet-sleep
And I will wonder
Why sleep is a treat

This disease removes
My covered requests
To bury my dreams
In the double-bed rest
Settled, sleep, chase
If I could, I would,
Forgive me my wife
For sleep removed.
