A Career Insomniac


They call me an insomniac
Sleep deprived and a little depressed
But, this is not how I see it though
A loving soul needs a constant caress

The night comes on so very blind
It goes on and on up until the daylight
Bragging on about her hold
Upon my life that it controls

I could not settle for anything less
A lot to cover within this mess
Fear haunts me on missing out
Of life and her colorful chest
Tattooed and etched upon her breast
Souls of blind and oppressed

Time is so short within this life
A lot to see and a lot to suppress
I might get my peace at the end
An eternal satiated sleep, nonetheless

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
