Sleepless Nights

~A midnight whisper to a hollow soul~
~Sleepless encounters continue to haunt~
~Walking through minds overwhelmed~
~Pressing heat against dying skin~
~Analizing, pondering,...stretching~
~Attempting to release all ties~
~Needing rest from hardened times~
~Vacant eyes stare into vacant space~
~Energy drawn from bloodless veins~
~Weakened and dark the night calls~
~The soul empty, the eyes blank, the heart broken.~

What a wonderful discription of the blankness when you cannot form words or thoughts or ideas.  You're numb with pain and anger.  Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem.

When all emotions are spent....the living death. It does pass and the soul may be altered but does come back to live and love again...if we allow it.

~Thank you both kindly for taking the time to read and comment.  I too have faith that it'll pass,..the fog is just really thick right now.  Thanks again. *Peace.

Now this is an absolute jewel of a poem! I've had many a night just like the one you've described here. Though I must admit, many of mine carried over into the days as well.

~Vacant eyes stare into vacant space~

Indeed.

 God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Unknown

SpitFire~
I LOVE the way you formatted these thoughts.

'Attempting to release' ...
and when it's done, you will once again enjoy the sleep-filled nights with many dreams.

Enjoyed.

~Insect,...thanks for taking the time my friend to read and reply.  I think we all have had them...mine are just continuing for months now?...It'll be fine.

~Now Christopher,...a Jewel???...how cool.    thank you for that.

~EagleOne,...thank you for the kind words and for the hoping.  It helps.

~Marge,...thank you dear for reading.  That is exactly what this was,..simply thoughts,..not really a poem but it felt right.  I have faith that it WILL be done sometime and when it is,..*sigh* then I will be good.

*Over in Dark I posted a poem titled Prison,..another little bit of insight into what it feels like I am living in right now.
~Thank you all....*Peace.

~~nice writing~~ this poem carried some strong expression.

 A life isn't significant except for its impact on other lives.

I had a late night last night and now I am really tired it is almost if I had no sleep at all, anyway sorry on to the point.

midnight whisper to a hollow soul~

That was quite powerful, great poem.

I hope things improve, and the sand man pays you visit tonight.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? "
Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

Loved it Spitfire, always look forward, no matter what...and love is always wonderful even if a fleeting thing at times...and the memories we dream in later life temper the pains of youth, though when in youth we fail to recognize the memories we're making.
