After my three-day-long absence, I’ll bet some of you thought I’d forgotten all about National Poetry Writing Month. Not so! I had to choose between getting enough sleep and posting poetry. I chose sleep. I couple of nights ago, I had a fitful night of weird dreams and creepy nightmares. I wrote this poem on Thursday and have finally gotten around to posting it here, now that I’ve had a chance to catch up on some much-needed sleep.
Endless night of garbled dreams
Scattered wisps of memories
Evaporate by morning light
Nightmares stalk me through the day
The horror barely kept at bay
Afraid to fall asleep tonight.
