~~A Troubled Mind   7 comments




It’s late

Weariness waits

But I don’t sleep

List too long

No sweet song

Only promises to keep.


The night goes on forever and cares of the days haunt my tired mind.  The days…, the days, where did they all go?  They pass so quickly now and nights, too, are short and restless.  Longingly, I think of peaceful hours of times past, and of the soft contentment of love’s sweet fulfillment.  These, tonight are of little comfort, only serving to torture my thoughts by their dissolution and, at times, their absence.  I am bound to words given, vows spoken, and an unwavering loyalty to a way of thinking and living that is rapidly becoming archaic and outdated.  Sometimes feeling disoriented and rejected, out of sync with a world that leaves me stumbling in its wake.


I will surrender to inevitable exhaustion and, at long last, wander into the quiet world of my dreams.  Will these be of a past long past, or will there be a vision of a more pleasant present day…, or will they be of the happiness of a future promised by hope?  Sleep now…



Tomorrow will dawn a new day with new promises.

  1. I know my friend. I’m sorry also that I have been so disconnected. Know that you are ever into thoughts though I know those are just words not backed by action. Days past fast, life suddenly is half way gone, but we will always abide together because of love. XO Sheri

  2. I pray you found peaceful sleep and awakened to a bright and joyful new day.

  3. Sleep well with quiet dreams and slumbers deep.

  4. I pray that joy comes in the morning for you♡
