Insomniac: A Love Song in this Deep Night


A Love Song in this Deep Night

Stuck in the porch, waiting with my pen and notebook
I wish my inspiration would come fast
But it was invisible this time

My heart seems to be nowhere
My feelings whirl like a tornado
Of all the men I can love
Why in the man who can't give it back?

I was anxious and confused
I was desperate but I can't do anything
I was about to get crazy--
Imprisoning my feelings in poems

I won't cry,
When sleepiness pulls me
I will refuse and stay
I would rather stay up
And listen to a love song in this deep night
To keep my heart beating
To keep my body living
To keep my soul alive
And to shelter him in this broken heart

Thank you Purvi, I'm glad you liked it. Music can really soothe a heart. No matter what our feeling is, there will always be a music for it. Blessings Purvi ❤

Superb Dear,

I also like to listen music when I am disappointed and then I feel relaxation. Music is the best thing for entertainment.

Nice poem, Crezyl

Your invisible inspiration seems to have struck you well. I love the thought of listening to a love song in the deep night, although it makes me sad too.

I sometimes do that Brenda, laying down on my pillow wide awake but tired of thinking and he would come to my unknowingly, I don't know how my mind do that, it just keep on disobeying me. Thank you for the time Brenda. Glad to have you always ❤

Elijah, thank you for taking time reading my work. I am still in the midst of my youth, maybe? I am 20 years old. Honestly, my mind isn't clear yet, I am mostly confuse and nervous of the things that are happening in my life. But thank you for the advice, I will apply it in my life. Blessings Elijah ❤

There's nothing like a good song to get the feelings in a romantic mood..

A beautiful, captivating poem!

Nice work my dear!

Singing can cheer up a broken heart. Good read!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on December 20, 2019:

Sitting with your pen in your hand on the porch in the night sounds like a place to ponder your basic thoughts and maybe make some decisions. This is a lovely poem.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on December 20, 2019:


Sometimes the words just will not come...but lay your head down on the pillow then try to sleep...words usually come rolling into your thoughts.

So if ya get tired ..just lay down. You will have your love song in no time...then you will be able to sleep.

Seems somehow we just can't let a day go by without remembering the one who cannot share his heart with ours.

You said it best, " shelter him in this broken heart"

Nice write.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on December 20, 2019:

Crezyl, way back in my teenage days I often wondered the same thing, it isn't only girls for longing boys but boys for girls. I never expressed it but in due time I found my answer, something I had said ate age 12 and added to it at age 15. Once I fulfilled those foretold prophecies of my life that longing perished. Maybe you have foretold something on your childhood that may be the answer to your longings so think over things you've said in your youth, maybe only to yourself, and see if the answer is there.

I enjoyed the reading and want to thank you for presenting it.

I'm glad that it suited you Jason. I like to draw when I was younger and now, I don't know how to do it. When I am so down, I just listen to old songs, lying on my bed or sitting in our porch and just stay still and feel the music with my heart and I will feel better. Blessings Jason ❤

Jason Nicolosi from AZ on December 20, 2019:

Another beautifully written poem. Wonderful job Crezyl.

I also listen to love songs when I feel heartache. Sometimes I write down my feeling in poetry and other times I might paint my emotions onto a canvas.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 20, 2019:

Yes John, I do that almost every night. I live in the country side, our porch have a nice view of sunset and sky in the night, with beautiful scent of fresh trees and flowers, the weather's nice because Philippines is a tropical country. I like to stay outside because of it. Thank you for reading it❤

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on December 20, 2019:

Oh, you gotta love sitting on the porch with your pen and notebook and listening to love songs. I can relate Crezyl. Nice job. Love the pic too.

Crezyl (author) from Philippines on December 20, 2019:

Yes Eric, a song that is in our hearts is the most beautiful. But it is really good to listen to classic love songs in the night. ❤

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on December 20, 2019:

"And listen to a love song in this deep night"

My friend that is all about. maybe just the song not sung but in our heart?
