Poem: Insomnia

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Insomnia is a poem about not being able to sleep. She used to sleep peacefully but now it's like dodging a tornado. Her thoughts constantly dart back and forth as she tosses and turns fighting sleep like a toddler.

"What Causes Insomnia? By Dan Kwartler"

Insomnia

The nighttime used to be her friend

comforting her soul as she slept peacefully

until the morning sunlight peered through the window


Now it’s like dodging a tornado

with her thoughts constantly darting

tossing and turning

with nightmares waging war.


Fighting sleep like a toddler

until the wee hours of the morning

when the song birds call.

I want to sleep but my brain won't stop talking to itself
