Insomniac Comments

Rating: 3.3
There are some nights when
sleep plays coy,
aloof and disdainful.
And all the wiles

A beautifully penned poem on a common understanding. The metaphysical refinement is missing.

A good nights sleep is a blessing. Many of us at one time or another have find it difficult sometimes to go to sleep. We think of any thing or any way to help us get a good nights sleep. I have a few poems related to sleep. Sleep, Sunrise & Sunset, & Then Comes the Night Short and sweet.

To me, being an insomniac is the best thing for my poetry. All my flashes of insiration happen late at night! Great relatable poem. Please check out some of mine - new to this site and would love to 'Get the ball rolling' and get any feedback; positive or negative - on my writing! thanx (some poems of mine include to be free, do you...etc)
