I wrote this poetry as an entry to today’s prompt of Writing101, Poetry: Sleep from Rohit Pandey.
Bio: Rohit Pandey (aka R ‘I’ P) is an Indian blogger / writer from New Delhi, and a self-proclaimed “man with a heart.” You can read more from him on his blog, Straight From Heart and on Twitter @officiallyrohit.
Sleep: a world where our thoughts rule.
A place where reality is overshadowed by dreams.
A time when we transport our soul from the real world to the virtual.
For some, the hours we spend asleep, alone and in peace, are the best of the entire day; for others, whether haunted by nightmares or unable to fall asleep in the first place, not so much.
It’s time to think deeply about sleep. Dive into the pool of night and let whatever it is you find there take poetic form. (I hope this prompt doesn’t make an insomniac out of you!)
