My wife woke me up early in the morning. Still sleepy, I rested my head on the palm of my bent arm and closed my eyes, knowing that I couldn't fall asleep in that posture, at least if I did, my head would fall off and it would wake me up.

Is it understandable?

Thanks.

It is anatomically odd. Your palm is the undersurface of your hand.

My wife woke me up early in the morning. Still sleepy, I rested my head on the inside? edge? of my bent arm and closed my eyes, knowing that I couldn't fall asleep in that posture; at least if I did, my head would fall off and it would wake me up.

I knew it would be incomprehensible. I wanted to say that I rested my elbow on the bed with my hand in the air and my cheek on the plam like posing for a shot lying. How to rephrase the original to describe this?

Thanks in advance.
