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

    Staying awake is important for poets. Allowing our poetic energy time to mature. Thanks for sharing my friend! (Report) Reply

    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
    Might notice -
    And tell me goodnight.

    Hope u like this slight adjustment.

    Goodnight - Jay (Report) Reply
