Analysis

This poem uses both “me” and “you” as it makes the situation more clear for everyone. This is the situation where the poetess cannot sleep, but wants to. Reading (poetry), helps her during these periods. Periods that are difficult, since she does want to sleep.

This poem is also a tribute to poets and poetry in general. The fact that she is able to get strength from reading is a great way to show that poetry is so much more!

What also helps her through these periods (of no-sleep), is writing poetry herself. We published her work before on our website. If you are interested in following this poetess, visit her Instagram profile.

Dear Beautiful

Dear Beautiful

Poetry keeps me alive on the darkest of days
When it’s hard to move forward. When the dark
blinds you and makes you lose sight
of the light. On those dark nights, my body wanders
in the city of poetry. I lose myself in it and it
rewards me with a fresh dose of hope. When I
stumble upon the path of life  again, the sun is
shining again and the darkest nights are over.

Insomnia

Insomnia doesn’t really need an explanation as it is part of many poems, books, movies and even songs. It is a sleep disorder and more than trouble sleeping or getting to sleep. It is a condition that can lead to sleepiness during those moments you don’t want or need it. It can also lead to depression, irritation and problems focussing on the most basic things.
