Sleepless Nights

I sleep, though it’s only temporary Simple love exists there within my eyes However it’s broken, quite unhealthy I cannot sleep, I awake with disguise Simple love exists there within my eyes She holds all my thoughts firm outside and in I cannot sleep, I awake with disguise As though she holds me, she doesn’t begin She holds all my thoughts firm outside and in Confused about our love I wake again As though she holds me, she doesn’t begin Never can she grasp my heart, it’s a sin Confused about our love I wake again She has messed with my head from all over Never can she grasp my heart, it’s a sin What she has done to me, she’s no lover She had messed with my head from all over Such to keep me up all hours of the night What she has done to me, she’s no lover I can’t find sleep, it’s truly out of sight Such to keep me up all hours of the night I don’t know how you could do this to me I can’t find sleep, it’s truly out of sight I start off sleeping, a light sleep I see I don’t know how you could do this to me However it’s broken, quite unhealthy I start off sleeping, a light sleep I see I sleep, though it’s only temporary

    Sleeplessness over love. That is one that is not MY problem these days, but you portray it well. Sure wish I knew why I can't sleep any more. I'm going to do a triolet for my entry!

    Russell you have conveyed what I call muddled love that stirs copious emotions. Provoking thoughts of what might have happed. An excellent write. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Interesting topic for the sleepless nights contest..Reads like winning materia..I am glad that I chose this one to read today..Thanks for stopping by..I would desire to get rid of those fireants but they seem to have found a home that is great for them..Some people are highly allergic to them which is very dangerous..Sara

    a remarkably upbeat piece of writing--though it describes tossing and turning just to doze off-- it is full of tonality and mood, russell.... this is fine work!... enjoyed it!..:) huggs

    I agree with Alfred. This is very unusual for you, Russell. Unusual is good. I enjoyed reading this. Sleep depravation due to thoughts of love....wow! Never can she grasp my heart, it’s a sin! No wonder you're having sleepless night! ;) Good write and good luck in contest!
