Sleepless Night


sleepless night,
a night of temptations
a night full of horror
a night i couldnt sleep
because i was too scared

sleepless night,
a night i didn't want
to go to bed because
i might dream about
horrible things

sleepless night,
a night which people
talk without stopping
because they dont want
to fall asleep

sleepless night,
a night no one
wanted to close
his or her eyes
is a sleepless night
no one is going to bed

    I can read worry and stressful situations in this poem, it tells me a lot, the nights when sleep alludes you, mind full of sadness and frustration, the night -darkness accentuates the negative (Report) Reply

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
