Before I Lay Still...

Before I Lay Still...

A Poem by Dr. YumnaKay

Ramblings. Writing after three months, I guess :x

Ethereal nights 
with dreamless sleeps.

Still, every day, 
my sleep-laden eyes reveal 
the turmoils that have found 
their home inside my heart.

Day after day, my numbing brain
thinks of letters and alphabets
to form words that carry 
no meaning.

But still, I ramble on, 
in the hopes that all of this
will end somewhere...

That I, too, will have a happy end.
If not too soon,
then someday, somewhere,

before I lay still in the arms 
of my beloved...

Author's Note

Dr. YumnaKay
I apologize for being out of touch. But I've been caught up in the real world. Tried writing after a long while because I was afraid that I'd lost my poetic voice. Still not sure.
If you read this, thanks so much for your time x
