SLEEPLESS NIGHTS



Crawl in, crawl out, then look inside travel into my own hazy mind. The porches are locked, curtains spin while doubt is the ruler within. And railings smell of a betrayed time with pain endured like roots outstretched. Broken lies, a mistrusting wrath As lost sleep drips time’s aftermath. Each flower has a tale, or maybe less right down to the boughs and damp weeds. Portraits shade halls, and thin mirrors collapse on ached nights, bone splinters. My gate in front is thick to fit through, Room of secrets I share not with dreams. Pounding that door quells riddled sound, my heart is cold, the key not around. Till moonlight drowns eyes wide awake Soaking her glow, now it handles me. Darkness peels my defence, soft as pink I walk outside and let stars re-wink. Sleepless Nights Contest of Leonora Galinta by nette onclaud

    Nette!! This is such an interesting one. You've created some very cool images - You really got creative with this topic! I especially love that last line. WOW.

    Stunning vibe. A tad on the unsettling side. Emotions at a battle w/peace & solitude. Fantastic!

    This has a different feel than your other work, I like it as well although it is most disturbing. You have done very well. If I could give you more than a seven I would.

    Wow, that last stanza really states everything you were trying to say throughout your poem my friend, especially the lines, "Till moonlight drowns eyes wide awake[which would be true with me, definitely]....I walk outside and let stars re-wink[I can visualize this completely]." I truly loved reading this enlightening and wonderful poem this morning! You have written another spectacular piece for all of us to read....and I'm one that is glad to have the opportunity to read this Great Work!!

    Nette...this is deep and thought provoking. Hauntingly sad, yet as Rora mentioned, it ends on a high note of hope. Very descriptive piece.
