Couched

The cushions laced with something magical;

Draining any energy a lounger possesses.

Sleep comes swiftly, especially when cozied up.

A blanket insulates, further entrancing victims.

The sounds of distant trains and cars fade;

Music or movies blaring disappear too.

A shrill ring of the phone might make it through,

But the purrs and mews drown it out,

Encouraging deeper and deeper sleep.


Why can I fall asleep on the sofa in less than 5 minutes, but stare at the ceiling for an hour in my bed? The sofa must be enchanted!
