I know alot of poeple have written about this subject but I just wanted to share this one

Imposing upon me like an unwelcome visitor
Not welcome in my time of sleep
SLEEP what is that, I do not know
Ominously it takes me over like a dark evil
Making it's way into my night and
Never letting me find solace in rest
Instead I'm plagued by restlessness
And my unwelcome visitor is allowed to roam  
        free

Well, I've always said sleep is highly overrated...LOL  Glad to see I'm not the only one up at this hour....LOL  I love your perspective of Sleep, too.  Great poem, Tracie.

Well, lately seems me and the bed don't hit it off to well, I feel I'm fighting it all night long just to be comfortable, and I wake up with a rat's nest for a hairdo. Great poem you described Insomnia well.

Tracie~
Great descriptive view.
I like the acrostic ...
brings focus to the event.

I don't mind the insomnia
as long as the muses keep me company.
Nice job, gal.

Hi Tracie,

I find that when I can not sleep its because my minds eye is trying to find a answer to some thing not conpletely understood by my soul, am I the only one who thinks this way???  Love your poem

INclan thanks for your reply

Marge My dear friend
I don't mind the Insomnia really and the Muses can keep me company anytime but it's when that darn alarm clock sounds at 6.30am that I hate cause an Hr before that is usually when I'm ready to go into a deep sleep Doh! don't ya just hate that.  LoL my friend

I guess i will give up sleeping to
as I just have a very bad dream last night
but your poem is still beautifully done
Thank you

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Christopher, severn and Ruth I think just about all here at passions relates to this, some more often than others. I guess that it's better for the words and rhyme's to be going through my head at night when I'm really not doing much else (APART FROM TTYING TO SLEEP)than during the day when I have to really concentrate on my work.

Danny thanks for your reply   I'm so glad to be in the teen poetry forum when I get the chance and I know you're doing a great job in there giving encouragement and praise, It's wonderful
