- Bed -

If there is a bed,
You need to sleep
Don't you?

Someone
Told me:

You can buy
A bed -
But you can't
Buy sleep.

Can you? !

Hi Aparna, A very truthful write. Yes, you can buy bed, but not sleep. Very poignant poem..
I am astounded by the simplicity of the words and the elegance of your expression. A simple statement about sleep can become a solution to a philosophical riddle. Thank you very much, Aparna.
