Nighttime Closing In

Nighttime closing in

Finally peace and quiet

Mind and body sleep


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

I’ve Lost My Passion

I’ve lost my passion

I hope only for a while

Words flow less freely

Both mouth and mind are tongue-tied

Which causes me such great pain

Perhaps I need rest

Time to think and gather thoughts

Away from the screen

Putting pen back to paper

Maybe the old ways are best


~~ Dominic R. DIFrancesco ~~


Absent Though Not Gone

Absent though not gone

A temporary reprieve

Enjoy my silence

Though unlikely to last long

I’ll be back with a vengeance

Time for regrouping

Collecting all of my thoughts

A tidy bundle

Set to explode on the page

For the world at large to see

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

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
