ironic is the dream

For weekend wordsmith no. 85: Sleepless

ironic is the dream
whose theme is insomnia
and bizarre still to wake
not having slept a wink.

oh struggle, oh trouble,
heartache and nostalgia.

what worry, what vigil,
wrestle, tussle and think.

ironic is the dream

Ooh...I like this one especially your lines 'and bizarre still to wake not having slept a wink'. I think we all know that feeling...

Marianne thanks for reading and commenting - I like yours too especially "tossing
Sheep back to their fields."
