Friday is Poetry Day

Sleep

Sleep, Oh sleep, evading me, taunting me,

Holding me in your power.

The long dark night, my thoughts in turmoil,

Hour after lonely hour,

Sleep, Oh sleep, will you ever come

And take this dread away,

Of lying here, with tormented mind,

Until the break of day.

Excerpt from Heartfelt by Shirley Ford
