Just A Wink Away

Sometimes
When I lay at night
I find myself floating along
On the waves of expressions;
Mesmerized by the poetic verses
That flow through my mind
Playing; taunting; teasing me
To get up; compose a new verse.

*****

Lost in a world of my own
Disconnected from the surrounding
Undetected from the radar
As the thoughts sweep and bleep
Unable to make some sense 
Sometimes I win, sometimes I don't.
But the night won’t ever be the same again
Eyes tired from being awake.

*****

Sleep; Locked away
Behind towering fortresses of mind
Drifting along with the breeze of thoughts
Disintegrating at the slightest movement
Letters, words, sentences; all dancing
A mystery. A jigsaw; to be solved
And sleep….. Sleep: so cunningly elusive
Just a wink away...but, it just won’t come to me!!
