Sleepless Nights - Poem by Kristina Lybbert

The time is 3am
I have not slept a blink
All night I lay in bed
Tossing and turning
To get you out of my head
But every time I close my eyes
The only thing I see is you
It puts a smile on my face
And I pray that you will visit
Visit the land of my dreams
For in my dreams it's a perfect world
A world made for you and me
I never have reason to miss you
When you live behind my eyelids
A sudden jolt awakens me
I check the time
It now reads 3: 10
And it all begins again

Form: Acrostic


Poet's Notes about The Poem

At 3am one night, I was unable to sleep because I couldn't stop thinking about I guy that I was really into. I checked the time, still couldn't sleep so I wrote this poem.

    Love is a spiritual experience that affects all and sundry profoundly. Sometimes, one is so overwhelmed by its blissful emotion that sleeping at night is not just possible. A lovely piece of poetry, well articulated and nicely penned from the heart. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
