Poem Commentary

nightmares and long sleepless nights are mine..sometime.



my lover, insomnia, has returned
she tipped my tables and bridges burned
she eats the stars that seals the night
interrogates with lurid light

with shallow breath i beseech she
to have sound mercy upon me
she crushes me and dis-endows
the pain i can't describe just now
pages and reams of words unsaid
turn to life from whence was dead
and people, places, assorted faces
set my mind off to the races

sleep eludes me riled and rude
and saturates with saddest mood

now myths and monsters blessed with birth
do haunt my pillows, hell is earth

Seems we share a mutual friend! Great piece I love it!



thank you lol. i am in the throes of insomnia currently. it comes and goes. the longest bout was four days. that was a very interesting week to say the least. ha ha



I know how that goes! I have found that a good shot of Whiskey helps me relax enough to fall asleep. Potentially habit forming but I try to only do it when I need to. I hope you can find rest tonight!



thanks, love !

This is a top rate poem. I love the metaphoricalness of it. (I know that isn't a word) Dark poetry is one of my favorite genres. Bravo!



oh thank u so much for your time, dear friend.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
