Sleep Has Deserted Me

Sleep has deserted me
Tiredness lies on the bed
Nightmare is the pillow
On which I lay my head
Demons sing a lullaby
Dreams are unclear
Every night is a struggle
Wish you were here

  1. Oh how I struggle with insomnia.
    But I can never get it together to do anytrhing productive… until the other morning when I got up and walked down the street to the beach to photograph the dawn… watch this space.

  2. Great post and poem and one that will resonate with many bloggers! In my opinion one of the many plusses of blogging on WordPress is… anytime I struggle with sleep (usually between 3.30 and 5.30am), I use the time to read blog posts, and take time to comment or write new posts! I see it, as an opportunity a Create Space instead of a challenging or upsetting issue!

    1. WOW, was the same and keep wondering what the significance of 3:30am, for many months I was not able to sleep or feel tired enough for sleep to come before this time.
      Thank you for sharing.
      My cold water showers are fixing mine though. Here’s to creating more space in writing👍🏾
