Insomniac

She grips the pillow tightly like someone may come in the room and take it. Not the one under her strawberry blonde hair, of course, but the one her boyfriend lays on. It’s comforting this cold night. She listens to the low hum of the fan that’s constantly running and that steady droll makes her feel better. There’s a loneliness when the dark world has their eyes shut and you’re the only one awake.

Write something! Break this long, fucking dry spell of writer’s block-even if what comes out completely sucks. Your few fans may understand, being writers themselves. If they laugh at you-you’ll never know it! Hold that head high! Just remind them you’re a stoic poet with a slight sense of humor. And maybe they will come back and read more another day…

  1. Hahaha!! I love having insomnia and when you run into writers block, what do you do? You grab a harder pen! I love how you spoke to the reader themselves and explained the situation as it was happening after ending the poem in mid drift. That was great. Now I gotta find the rest! 😁

      1. You’re welcome and you should always smile, you look better when you do. I’m sure you look good anyway but people look better when they smile. Why archive? I don’t archive anything I don’t think.
