Malicious creatures hover over my bed
Stealing and eating what's in my head

Their shrieks of laughter swirl around
I cannot move.... I am bound

Cannibal ways make them like vultures
Devouring my sleep.... disturbing my structure

Long slender fingers reach down with spite
Wish to fend them with all my might

They watch me sleep but take it away
Please leave me alone and do not stay

I have no control over these creatures
They do what they want and have few features

The battle for sleep has now begun
I shall win and will not run

Peace and love
-nat the blue eyed cat-

as they hover remember your features
to ascend to their level to observe these creatures

and once in their elevation ask with your eyes/mind
ARE you really different or me in disguise?

if something detected do not consider fear
just acknowledgement of YES the knows where here...

and so as your features from memory manifest
recognition from the CREATOR the/they comes a Connect

from this point on is it fear or ignorance
to proceed with deeds that some would repent..

ignorance or fear EXISTENCE LEVELS who really knows?

with this in mind to disrespect within a chapter/plane
can be a hideous move when considering whats after...

interesting read natalia

Wonderful poem!

Just remember we are as weak or as powerful as we believe we are when comes to inner strength and the fortitude to change.

Now I lay me down to sleep
Tossing and turning I count some sheep

My thoughts start twisting in my head
I remember the monster that lives 'neath the bed

I pull the covers over my body tight
And hope the sheep graze on the monster tonight

Couldn't resist Nat! Sorry, I don't wax very poetic!
Love, webmom

natalia, That was good. As I sit here writing battling my insomnia as usual, I read your rendering and enjoyed what you shared. Your efforts are always great to much talent and understanding and insight into feelings and such. Don't mind me....I hope I make sense....I am such a poor sleeper my brain seems truly addled at times.
Always good to see you here my friend. Blessings and hugs.

beautiful poem i really loved it

may i give you something to try and help you sleep as it worked/works for me

instead of trying to sleep do the opposite and try and stay awake

it always works for me.

dont forget to remove any clocks from your bedroom

you never know it may work for you as well

Thanks friend. A friend actually suggested that I unplug from all devices at the same time each night and read or write in my journal. It's been three days now since I've been doing this, and I will continue to do this and see if it eventually helps with my sleep.

I appreciate your suggestions and I will cover my clock up, I have a noise machine on it and like the waves as I drift off into dream land.

Hi Nat. I have experienced what you are writing. I use to fight my insomnia but it seemed the more I tried to get to sleep the more agitated and awake I became. I tried all the recommendations that are out there for achieving sleep. I never resorted to medication because I never wanted to go that route and be dependent in any way.

What has finally helped me is that I let my body speak to me. If it is ready to sleep I relax and let it happen. I realize that not everyone can do that. I am retired and live alone so I can let my self enjoy the afternoon nap, etc. Sometimes I will be up writing or reading when others are sleeping.

I try not to see myself as sleep deprived and not get anxious about it. I mean I do the other stuff like not drinking caffeine, or eating just before bed time. By relaxing and not trying to force my body into some kind of "normal" rhythm I feel less anxious and seem to sleep better and feel more refreshed when I awaken.

Listen to your body it will let you know.

Peace to you my friend.
