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
