writing to know, knowing thru being, being for writing... this is me, writing about the one thing i know, which is myself... and even that is sometimes a mystery...

midnight poem

lying awake in bed
feeling something sad
despondent awful.
shifting to find perfect fit
limbs jutting out from edges
old and aging
aching to sleep
squirming awake
defeated in my duvet
lying awake in bed.

aching with the pains of the day
the weight of time and moonbeams on my head
no force or magic will close these wakeful eyes
though tired with the weary wearing from the day.

all i want is sleep
and yet i dread the parting from the day
as the sun begins to peak up again
i fear i shall always lie awake,
an endless chain of yesterdays and tomorrows
ceaseless in my dreamless state.

    Great blog. We have similar profiles and both are kinda poets:-) I'll be back - I have 3 non-commercial blogs because I can't get it together with the ISP to get them onto my website (so I can jiggle with the formatting etc. etc.). Check out the Air America website as well - not sure of the URL - first time I've ever listened to a radio station that sounds like me talking to friends (and I don't have any on the right of Noam Chomsky). Try, it should get you to the others:-)

    hello, visitors!
    thanks for your comments and reactions!
    where did you all come from anyway? i'm just a little surprised is all. after all, my little blog's been up for a while, and i'm only now noticing a change in traffic patterns. just thought it funny. one can never predict these things, i suppose.
    great to have you stop by! please come back and visit!

    sorry for sad face :) previous comment

    was not the best shape that time

    also many of comments are commercial

    happy U like visitors


    as for Poetry

    its state of heart for me
    more than a work of words and language

    newerthless appreciate and admire all the efforts to express and share feelings and thoughs

    this makes humanity real and respectable

    the truth and the will to face it


    ... :)
