I won’t sleep Tonight

I won’t sleep Tonight long poem

So we gonna stay this way
What can I say, I fell in love with you
And now my heart beats only for you
I wanted this since so long
But no body was close to me
And if they got close to me they would fly away
Because of the differences, the irregularities
But I was still breathing
Like a teenage dreamer
What I can I say, I always threw love away
Yeah you know, I wasn’t that thought though
But I got infested by you
I always was fearless
But when I am around you, it’s like I am a hero in a movie
I want to protect you
What can I say
So we gonna stay like this
And I always say “Love won’t find its way to me”
But then it hit me
When you found me
Love found its way
They said god blessed me
Good life, Good looks and money
But I never cared about god anyway
So I threw all that away
I just wanted to be me
Can you see the real me?
So if you gonna stay , just say
I am still breathing , my heart is still beating
But something wrong with it
I look at you and know the reason why
My heart skips a beat or two when I think about you
And I feel free
I told my mother I’d grow up one day
But it ain’t today
What can I say
I am still breathing
Falling in love with you every evening
And I spent so many sleepless nights because of you
When I thought I’d fall asleep I thought about you
My heart went racing and I stayed awake
The colors of the world I never seen before I see in you
And what’s the craziest part of this is you
It was all planned out until you walked into my life
And then the plan was just blown away by the wind of change
I had to rearrange my whole life
Started to rotate around you and my mind was gone
Only thing I think about is you
And I can’t keep myself away from you
So we just gonna stay this way
Let the wind blow us away
Together floating, flying away
And again I won’t sleep tonight

To Sleep And Never Wake Again

To Sleep And Never Wake Again short poem

You speak of my frustrations in memories aloft High as I was in the sky, so as low will be my drop In most of days I long for you, and in most I feel the weight of the pain


Sleep short poem

Falling asleep deeper and deeper reality fading within my slumber, clearer and clearer it would become the dream I’d dream. So in this reality now I’d be. So which is real the dream I’d dream or waking up from where

Strangers In Sleep

Strangers In Sleep short poem

The dome has collapsed. You walk in fire on the eve of exhuming yourself, picking up the pieces of humming life. Eye to eye, the patience was wearing thin, fears had positioned themselves, at the doors, snarling. A mass grave


Sleep short poem

When moon rises in the sky, and the dark night gets darker. When silence is the all that surrounds, and in the middle, howl of hounds. When people sleep, but their dreams awake, when reality hides and rises the fake.
