Description: The title gives it away. I couldn't sleep and nightmares and thoughts kept me up. This went on for about 2 weeks until I wrote this. After that I got my rest again
Thank you for your time. Hope you enjoyed
Insomnia by Way of Thought -------------------------------------------
The thoughts keep me awake again
Thoughts of wonderment and despair
Fueled by love ballads and self-loathing anthems
they scream to me in silent voices
Their's is a morbid yet welcomed view
Enlightening me to the truth
but bathing in my disgust
It seems as if by chance they were born
Though they weren't created out of necessity
But as a cautionary tale
Rarely do I heed their warning
Which leaves me with more and more scars
and very few victorious speeches
And yet they do not quit
They continue to speak
Babbling on and on about the dreams I wish for
and the nightmares that come alive
Yet here I lay tossing and turning
Still trying to catch what sleep I can
Provided I pay the thought it's toll...
I like it, but there are parts where it just doesn't seem to make sense, particularly in the middle.
It might be grammatical error, or maybe I'm not suppposed to get it, butif someone were born by chance, what would the necessity be in their birth?
It just stuck out to me as sort of repetitive in a cool way.
And in the line before, I think there's a word missing >.>
Or I'm not supposed to get it
Who's getting bathed "in my disgust?"
Otherwise, I liked it, very imaginative and abstract, just how I like some poetry
