Not sleeping

Middle of the night. Not sleeping. Twisting in bed.
Checking the watch. Not-asleep time is piling up fast.
Should I get up?

Warm bed, cold house.The light will hurt my eyes.
And maybe sleep will come soon.
Or it won't. Likely it won't.

(Oh, the bed is warm and the house is not.)

Lavender lotion rubbed into my feet once put me to sleep.
Cheerios. Cocoa. Toast. Jam.

Should I get up?
