Mr. Sandman?

What kind of sleeper are you? Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed, or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream?

The original prompt can be found by following The Daily Post.

Sleep Is Not The Same These Days

Sleep is not the same these days,
because the cushion of our bed
and pillow of bodies no longer
meet in pair when the lights are out.

My view now framed with new perspective
is a slave to the passing daylight
and I find no reprieve in the coming night
when loneliness is nothing but shadows

I lay my head in the shallow crevices
of the mascara-stained leaches of my dreams.
There is no hopeful distraction; no wonder.
There is only empty darkness without you.
