Insomnia Poem by Vincent Kuo


Sleepless nights of sleepless clocks
with sleepless thoughts and mental blocks
Peace eludes me with each needle tick

Sleepless walks in nightmare schemes
of my sleepless mind in sleepless dreams
Rest escapes me on a pogo stick

With sleepless dread of sleepless fears
in sleepless floods of my sleepless tears
Depression plunges me in a greasy slick

Fidgety nights of twitchy stocks
Perhaps some whiskey upon the rocks
Will work its magic and do the trick

    Insomnia is still better than somnambulism.... I get bad sleep these days and your poem makes me ponder over whether I too am suffering from insomnia. Vincent Kuo, a good poem indeed.. (Report) Reply
