Insomniac (Sonnet)

Sleep evades I toss and turn

Begging for good nights rest

This is all for which I yearn

Searching for slumber in jest

Plague as a Vampire to obambulate

Passing hour after hour on end

Striving on my sanity confiscate

Of this my foe will not bend

Try as I might absolute I am sure

My struggle most nights will go on

An insomniacs fate for eternity endure

Lasting until I am gone

Maybe its time for Ambien’s magic

To sleep before body and mind go tragic


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


Word: Obambulate

    • Thank you very much. If it wasn’t for the prompt, I don’t know that I would have ever found or thought to use the word in a poem. It just shows that we can learn something new everyday no matter how old we are. πŸ™‚
