Insomniac Song | Poetry Prompt

I’ve noticed that creatives, writers especially often have trouble sleeping aren’t able to sleep. Are our brains hardwired to ignore biological functions like sleep when writing wants to happen (or when writing refuses us)? Insomnia is such a persistent and unwanted bed buddy. It just won’t take no for an answer.  Even though sometimes sleep is the time when those creative thoughts are more active.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Write a poem that somehow defeats insomnia. It could be something soothing that would lull the unaware to sleep, like he song below by the Dandy Warhols. It could be a duel where you are fighting Insomnia to reclaim your sleeping rights.Be creative and have fun with this. If you join in this week, let us know by backlinking to this  post, or posting your link the comments.

Have you submitted to our second anthology? How about our Write for Us spotlight? You should, because we’re waiting for your words. Happy writing!
