Leave Me Here

A Poem

Dawn creeps in

Rays of Light

Close the curtains

Extend the night

Flee the morning,

Drift back to sleep

Escape to shadows

of lingering dreams

Leave me here

Where I know peace

With the dawn

Comes reality

Let darkness surround me

Blanketed and warm

Consume my mind

Let is swarm

Leave me here

In this realm of dreams

Leave me here

I beg you please

Sometimes it is really hard to fall asleep at night because my mind wanders. It's difficult to shut it off and not think about all the things I have to do the next day or should have done today. Then the alarm goes off and I feel like I've just found my peaceful place of rest and contentment. It's even more difficult to get out of bed in the morning. My dreams play out like a movie and all I want to do is see what happens next. All I want to do is sleep in today and maybe tomorrow too. I feel the need to rest. REALLY rest.

      I understand what you mean about not sleeping. I struggle to fall asleep and when I do, I dream so vividly it's terrifying sometimes. Even when they are not bad dreams (which is rare) they come with such stark beauty and powerful colors they are hard to ignore. The seeming meaningfulness in my dreams seems like I need to do more with them than have them in my head. Love the poem!

      Beautiful kelly and I think many of us agrees with your sentiment . Leave me here.

      When one has the ability to translate what beauty entails , it's agreed they should not settle for anything less.

      As I saw the name kelly I knew there was something I had missed . I found ourt what it was.

      Great poem .

      I feel that way sometimes.. during those sweet dreams. I feel bad for people who wake up and can't remember what they dreamed about. Gorgeous poem!

      Hi Kelly. Sometimes putting thoughts into a poem is very helpful. I like the way you wrote it. I have a similar poem (expressed a little differently) you may like.
