Insomnia

MAGPIES GURGLED IN the morning dark. I was sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee, rubbing my eyes. Granted, caffeine is not the ideal way to get to sleep, but there comes a time after several months of insomnia, that you know you’re not getting there anyway.

It was that time before sunrise that you’re still not sure the sun is actually going to come up. Night hadn’t lifted its curtain and the quiet of the evening still sat over the suburban landscape. An insomniac feels this time keenly. He hears the first birds with disbelief that another completely sleepless night has gone by, listens to the slowly waking traffic with a sort of paranoia. I had tried everything to get to sleep. I’d tried sleeping pills, melatonin pills, apps which turned the screen different colours or reminded me to go to sleep, hot milk, I’d even gone to a strange ex-stage hypnotist who tried to make me sleepy with a gold watch on a chain. None of it was effective, none of it brought on sleep. I sipped my warm coffee and breathed the morning’s cold in through my nose. What I’d give for just half an hour’s unconscious rest.
