Though I rest my weary head
The way is barred to slumber’s bed
Fare thee wells still left unsaid
Too long walked these roads to shed

Gate is tall and closed fast
My greatest fear I find surpassed
How could it be that this comes to pass?
I am defeated here at last

Night in sky whispers regret
Of endless travels I can’t forget
Abandoned by those still unmet
I sit and dwell on my plans, upset

“Let it go,” windy whispers spout
“Worry no more for this ‘round-a-bout”
“Tomorrow, victory!” I stand and shout
I turn, I sit and then I log out.

    Congratulations on your awesome poetry being featured this week..Very intriguing...(Worry no more for this ‘round-a-bout” “Tomorrow, victory!” I stand and shout) I loved this line... Knowing that you can go to sleep, wake up and then start ALL over...Nicely done~GB, Tyesha

    I loved what your poem said to me; I can empathize and I commend you for being able to express these feelings so poetically. I wish the meter was more in sync, though. If this bothers you, email me and we can tweak it. ***Danielle***

    Great write here Alison that for me captures the frustration of words demanding to be written at the most unlikely times .. LOL ... love this one and its a wonderful selection to be a feature this week here at the Soup. Congratulations!
