Sleep

night sky

Thank you for pulling me
into a tight embrace
allowing my mind to rest at last
my heart to beat at a slower pace
for tears to refrain from sliding fast
I needed this breathing space

    • A movie triggered some anguish, which I carried to bed with me and finally, I was able to fall asleep and forget. The next morning life looked brighter. Thanks so much, Marina, it’s funny how words can spring up in the middle of anything. Hugs for a Happy July to you, too, my friend…xo

    • Thanks, Chris, and you said it so well. I saw a movie Friday night, very good, but a tearjerker, which also hit a little close to home. I took those tears to bed with me and just felt that “no breathing” panic all over again. Fortunately, sleep did come not too long after and the next day, I was fine…sheesh! 🙂 ♥ xo

    • Aww…thanks so much, Angela, for your lovely comment. This came to me right after a movie triggered some sad thoughts and prevented me from sleeping right away. Finally, I drifted off, though, and the next day was brighter! 🙂 Hugs! xo

  1. Just lovely, Lauren! Movies, music, and, of course, poetry can sometimes evoke emotions that don’t need explaining … but to be ‘allowed’ to do their ‘work’ on our souls. Big hug! XO ♥

    • Thanks again, Diane, whew, you’re making me work hard. Just kidding! 🙂 I always love your feedback and appreciate it dearly…yes, that movie was really good, but very sad and just hit home a little too close with our daughter’s situation…I appreciate the hugs, too! Lots of love to you, my friend, and I’m glad you liked this poem that was written in minutes. 🙂 xoxo

    • Thanks for your beautiful comment; this came to me after a movie triggered some things too close to home. It’s simplistic, yet real and I’m glad it has been well received. 🙂 Have a lovely weekend!
