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