My sleep is starving.

It is shivering sweat like snow
across my shoulders as I sob scream
after scream against your skin;

"sorry, I'm so sorry,
go back to sleep."


I am sad
and struggling to stay
together but you slump
against my sickness
and hold me
anyway.

Sorry to stop by here again-I just read this for the nth time (it's been a year haha) and I can't tell you just how much I can relate to this. As a person with sleeping problems, it's difficult to get a goodnight sleep without having too much to think and worry and cry over about. So thank you for this. :huggle:

Profound and insightful. I particularly like the connection between My sleep is starving and "sorry, I'm so sorry, go back to sleep."

I personally don't have anything in particular to say, other than making a few mentions of people who might be able to comment on this poem better:


For me, its something strong, and it really took my breath away.

All those 's' words are just wonderful; great alliteration, especially the line: 'It is shivering sweat like snow'.
