Stars Go To Sleep

Stars! Why be awake with me
Hit the bed and go to sleep
You are not enslaved by agony but free
My bleeding soul’s wounds are deep

Through my open window you peep
With your twinkling searching eyes
Your glow in my gloomy nights creep
With the grace of the fireflies

Someone gifted me sleeplessness
And  rewarded me with anguish
My nights darkness and gloom dress
Like out of water fish I languish

Why be overly worried for me
A day may return my deserted sleep
Setting from the bondage my soul free
When that happens you must not weep.

Stars! I beseech go to sleep!

    such a nice write, I bet you could write a good one with rhyme INSIDE of a line, kinda like your "You are not enslaved by AGONY but FREE" this could be seen as internal half rhyme [repeating the long E sound] Please consider entering my contest The Rhyme Inside..Light & Love

    I might try looking at the stars next time I can't sleep. I usually stare at the ceiling. Torture long sleepless nights. Well done beautifully done. Thank you Monica
