       "Lo! Death has reared himself a throne"
    - Poe, Edgar Allen, 1831, The City in the Sea

    This poem is written using the Monotetra form.

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    In silence, thoughts have taken flight
    Like constellations filling night.
    Conceptions born in mind ignite
    A sleepless plight, a sleepless plight.

    Such restlessness abandons sleep
    By deeming it a pleasure cheap
    As, deep inside, ideas creep
    Within mindís keep, within mindís keep.

    Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
    By making weary every bone
    And leaving not, unturned, a stone
    To sleep postpone, to sleep postpone.

    Whatís that I see upon the lawn
    As hours slip past the telltale yawn?
    First light appears and thoughts are gone
    with break of dawn, with break of dawn.

      I love this poem! I don't usually leave comments to people, unless something sticks out, I just wrote a poem about the same thing (same title too, I suppose it's a common one) and wanted to read other peoples poems on the same thing. I liked the quotation of Poe, which is a nice synchronicity, as my poem quotes Lennon. I look forward to reading your other works.

      Very nice, very nice. The rhyming was excellent. I thought it was very soothing. I really like it. The last paragraph was beautiful.

      I usually hate stuff that are taken from parts of other's work..but this one is actually better than Edgar Allen Poe's poem "The City in the Sea"...it's not my style but i enjoyed it and very much liked it..great rhythm, flow, portrayal, and very poetic

      now this is so much better than the last...this particular style fits you a bit more, i'm thinking.....

    it has a draw to it, the exhausted repitition of sound that honestly is a huge chunk of this piece's appeal (yes i know, so very wrong, but oh well)

    i believe my favorite part of this is:

    "Lo! Death has reared himself a throne
    By making weary every bone
    And leaving not, unturned, a stone
    To sleep postpone, to sleep postpone."
    an intriguing stanza

      Neat poem, Sharon! I'm not familiar with the format, but you have executed the poem brilliantly! Insomnia; kinda makes me think of my college days, observing the dawn breaking after being up all night studying after work!
