No sleep

From left to my right I can not see,there is no light. From up then down to my pillow what is it thats bothering me so? Fantasy to Fantasy. Great things i always see Reality seems too mean so i don't include it in my wildest dreams. Jumping in and out of bed meditating and playing with my legs. What is it that keeps me awake when everyone is done for the day? Blankets next to me,then on the floor sometimes the other way around,because i fall. My head is so itchy and so is my skin is there an uninvited guest testing me? After a while My legs begin their usual complaining while my brain joins in with crying. My skin gets a little bit of a chill then my sheets come back to me. My eyes saying their last goodbyes to the entertainment of the night The bed and pillow so soft its like its brand new from the shop. (Sighs) GOODNIGHT

Bokamoso Matsawane, Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@
