       My first rhymed poem in some time...

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


    If I wake up late at night
    When dreams fail to take flight
    Can I go outside?
    Where it's cool and wide
    Or stay here in
    Where it's cramped and thin
    Can the stars solve my sleeplessness?
    Can the wind sweep away this mess?
    Or will it take a pill
    To kill the ill
    And send me back to dreaming

      It makes me think of the kind of insomnia where you want to lay down and sleep, but for some reason your body wants to walk for miles. The rhyming is pretty good and you have a great rhythem without sounding like a bad hallmark card. Usually, I'm not one for poems this short, but you've managed to fit everything in without making it feel rushed. This is a very good write, and I shall be adding the to my favs. ^_^

      It is nicely rhymed, and just the right length.

    you might rework this a bit...

    'Or stay here in
    Where it's cramped and thin'

    You probably just need to write another poem to send you back to dreaming, rather than take a pill.
