Sleep why do you leave me

feeling so very desolate?

As words form an orderly

line at this creative gate.

Why do you rob me of my

precious dreams

to think instead of reality

and all that, it seems.

Sleep why do leave

me alone with my shadow

where darkness

waters thoughts sown.

Sleep, why do you

leave me alone?

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
