Awake


Keeping myself awake
till my face touched by sun light
tired, waiting …
thought that might
somebody still notice me
to tell me good night

    This is a really good poem, simple and very poignant.

    To improve the scansion and effect would have written it slightly differently:

    Keeping myself awake,
    Till my face is
    Touched by sunlight....

    Thought someone

    Hope u like this slight adjustment.

    Goodnight - Jay (Report) Reply
