A Poem by J.Truth

All I want is to sleep. That's all..

R  E  S  T  L  E  S  S

The yelling
The screaming
make it

The arguments
The bantering
Insults swore
back and forth

Tell me,
Will it ever

I'm trying to sleep
I want some silence
Nobody listens
they just keep,

I hate you."

All I ask for
is to sleep
in peace

Why can't they grant me that?
-a time for myself
when all
the noise
will cease.

It's sanctuary I seek
Instead, I get screams

-Outcries. With no end.
Until eventually
I lie awake

Waiting for
when day

i know how you feel...maybe sometimes you need to relax and free your mind from everything thats running around in your mind...and sometimes writing could express your true feelings deep inside of your heart....

How strong your emotions are through these words is astounding - standing in the room with you, I am.
Why do we (as a society) choose to ignore the cries and needs of the ones closest to us...? Perhaps if we gazed beyond our own horizon; we would see the pain and hurt we cause.
The dawn should-be illuminating enjoyment to begin anew; otherwise darkness shrouding.
Never stop writing and allowing your beautiful thoughts to bring clarity unto others. I hope (soon) your 'restless' eyes will envision a brighter day...

I know how you feel. Its a terrible feel and experience to go through. I could feel all the emotions, the sadness the anger and frustration.. it made it intense and wonderful. Great job!

i definitely know how you feel here. it's an awful experience. this poem sums it up perfectly, and the flow is great. i can feel your anger, sadness, and frustration all bottled up at the same time. it's quite an intense poem, and you just hit it out of the park. great job!
