Later post than I wanted. School has been freaking busy the past few weeks – at least now all my exams and assignments are done. Starting my placement in a few weeks and I’m very excited (and super nervous, but it’s the good kind of nervous). Hopefully I won’t be too busy to write whilst doing my placement, and hopefully I’ll be able to start working on my story again *crosses fingers*. So just two poems this week, hopefully they’re decent!!
Lying in bed – wide awake,
sleep tonight I cannot fake.
My strength already begins to break.
Time seems to have stopped tonight,
impatiently I wait for a glimpse of light –
sleep calls to me but is out of sight.
I wait for dreams to appear,
so far away and yet so near…
exhausted – yet I’ll persevere.
My mind ignores my sleep request,
my body aches as it protests –
alas, I still await some rest.
Life keeps passing by
as though I disappeared.
Sadness I cannot deny –
alone – no family or peers.
I thought once that I could fly
far, far away from here,
and I would be the one to say goodbye –
instead I am the one in tears.
Life moved on and I don’t know why
they have gone and I’m still here.
I guess I will never see the sky –
I am grounded for the rest of my years.
