Finding Sleep

April 13, 2021



journey out
into a forest of thoughts
dislike some throughts
enjoy some thoughts
bask in the excitement
of new thoughts every moment
then remember the goal
to go to sleep
try to run away
run away from the thoughts
find a clearing in the forest
but a clearing with thoughts
not as many
but still there are thoughts
thoughts that lead back
to the dense areas
of the forest of thoughts
but keep going back
back to a clearing
any clearing
for out of all those clearings
in one
just one
will you find sleep
waiting sleepily to greet you

    "A forest of thoughts": I love the metaphor and how you use it to tell a story within the poem!
