The Lullaby - Poem by Sameera Alshaikh

The lights go out - I'm all alone
I spent the night on my own
Soaked in tears I sink like a stone
Unnamed feelings never let me go
Pacify the monsters in my head
Pacify the damn monsters, my dearest friend.

    Love the simplicity & touch in this...good work

    I hope the dark of night will soon be gone
    As by dawn when the Golden lights turn on.

    I applaud this! This is short and precise. Most of your poems are dark just like mine too. (Report) Reply

    Most important part of a man's life is night which I enjoy every minute in sleep! Cheer up and be happy! (Report) Reply
