Insomniac Sadness

Rating: 4.7

Walls of night surround me
crowding hard and closing in.

Tonight’s sleep
yet another failed marathon,
alone except for the clocks
whose beats break my silence.

The stage is set, the actors here
but a heart’s reel of film

shows only reruns on a lonely night.

Hi CJ, Been here and done this (and still doing it) . It's just a stage I suppose and gives me the time to think quietly and alone about new ideas. Best wishes.

CJ This is so beautifull put together. I read it out loud a few times (My girlfriend asked me who I was talking to) and would love to hear a reading of it because, now and again you feel that a voice can add so much to the words. Much love Denis Joe

A good poem (of course) and I wonder if a glass of unhomogenised, unpasteurised milk might help? Or, there was something else that makes for restful sleep..... H
