Sleepless Nights

Sleepless Nights

A Poem by José Humilde

After a conversation I had with a good friend, I had this idea for a fun poem.

I spend sleepless nights, tossing and turning.
My heart aches so bad, it feels like it's burning.

Thinking of you, it keeps my mind racing.
Foolish dreams are what I keep chasing.

My broken soul is lost, and I need to find it.
I also need sutures; perhaps I can bind it.

What I really need to do is explain my true feelings.
How you send me soaring, my head scrapes on ceilings.

What I enjoy most is making you laugh.
It makes my heart full, instead of empty or half.

I'd challenge any boy that "spits game" your way.
A match of their choosing. Any game, I'll play.

Your love is the prize, and I want to win it.
Life has no purpose if I can't have you in it.

.That was really deep, very intriging. The title is wonderful. It pulled me in and kept me interested. I could really feel your pain, and see you on a sleepless night. It was really beautiful
