Poem: "Scrambled Thoughts"

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

"Scrambled Thoughts"

Deep reflection

whispers in the quiet of the night,

tossing and turning

with scrambled thoughts

as the hours slowly creep.


Like a child fighting sleep,

she gives in to the delusions

keeping her awake,

playing each scenario

like a movie in her mind.


Drifting aimlessly

towards a resolution,

finding peace and comfort

before her eyes see

the light of a new morning.

A RUFFLED MIND MAKES A RESTLESS PILLOW.

— Charlotte Bronte - British Novelist
