Sleeping Beauty am I not
Tired hands shake a lot
Eyes of red, tears of a dream
Telling my brain not to scream
Brain surrender to this dream
So I can understand this foolish theme
Silly jabber is what I hear
as this brain is in full gear.

This appears to be either a short sequel to or, perhaps a post script of the insomnia piece... I'm still wanting for the demon personified in some way and a hero come out of it somehow.. Short, but to the point..



actually I wrote this one first. If I can't sleep sometimes I write what is in my head. There is no demons or heros, just my feelings

Interesting interpretation! Another well-written poem. I like the arrangement of simple phrases into a short, powerful poem. Great Job! God bless! :))

This is something I can mosy certainly identify with. Is there no rest for the weary?? This screams the feelings of every insomniac alive. Great write. Thanks for sharing.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.
