I haven't slept

Updated on April 11, 2016

Drag my 'I' out,
awe me now.

I haven't slept,
keep me awake somehow.

Let me black out,
fill in your love.

Clear-up the sky bright,
make my stars glow.

Time's waiting quiet,
for your next move.

      Thank you Vishnu sir. Sleep has been taken away by our own life styles. Both emotional and physical lifestyles are on doldrums.

      Thank you Manatita. :-) I love this song from mj and felt to write about the emotion behind that song in my own words. I feel satisfied that you all liked it.

      MJ adds to this beautifully. It's tough when sleep eludes one...
