Another Sleepless Night

A streak of lightning

A shriek of thunder

   A foreboding

Of a dreary rain

For  a weary brain.

Despite taking a  pill ,

I lay awake still

Elbows at the window sill,

Hands against my cheeks.

I can hear

Down in the still waters

Of  the murky   creek,

frogs croak

and the ticking of the clock.

the sound  Of  the midnight  train

Comes to shake The  windowpane

And with it comes the rain.

No rubbing the eyes

No yawning

So , another sleepless

Dreamless night

In the offing.


This is my first thursday poets’ rally poem , I hope you ‘ll love it.I’d like to thank Jingle for giving me the opportunity to take part in this rally.This is her blogging home:


My feelings were in utter chaos

Which I couldn’t really fathom,

But incurred people’s pathos.

I was a prey to spleen and boredom

Insomnia was my nightly friend,

Extremely fatigued from head to toe

My body was too feeble to mend

My self-esteem was gone and my spirits low.

I lost my appetite for life and food

Brooding over ideas of a gloomy kind

Irritability became my daily mood

Death and suicide haunted my mind

Thrusting into oblivion the Hard times I went through

Thus resolving to reshape my whole life anew
