“Sleepless 1 And 2” By Jayne King

The below poem was written by Jayne King. I hope to publish more of Jayne’s work in the future.

The birds have started to tweet,
Night is turning to day.
Yet I haven’t had a wink of sleep
The Land of Nod seems far away.

Slowly colours are emerging
From the growing light of day
Lengthy shadows, too, have formed
Why is Nod so far away?

Dawn has broken,
Unnatural sleep comes my way.
Have I become undead?
Awake at night and sleeping during the day.
