Poem: Morning Beauty

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

Morning beauty is a poem about her going to sleep but tossing and turning throughout the night.

When she awakes she looks frightful, with hair like Phyllis Diller. She jumps into the shower to let the magic begin for beauty sleep has skipped her once again.

Morning Beauty

She tumbles on the bed

to rest her droopy eyes,

as pain shatters the nerve fibers in her lower back.


She tosses and turns

with dreams weaving in and out,

as kitty snuggles close to her chest

keeping the nightmares at bay.


When she awakes,

she sees quite a fright

in the reflection of the mirror,

with hair like Phyllis Diller

and dark, baggy circles beneath her eyes.


She sighs,

heading for the shower

to let the magic begin,

for beauty sleep has skipped her

once again.
