Fear, Sleep Away

Sleep away your fears
My darling. 
Let your brain rest free:
Light's dimming. 

Forget that you care,
Darling, smile.
Forget the nightmare
For awhile.

Sleep; let your eyes dry.
Time to rest.
Tell your pain to fly.
Just forget.

Darling, sleep is calling ~
Close your eyes.
Sleep is comforting ~
Restful lies. 

For a night it's OK.
Sleep and smile.
'Til the morning day
Comes to strike.


I used to write a lot of poetry. I rarely share of any of it, as it tends to be personal. But this I felt like sharing ;) Sometimes you are just so tired of life, and remembering, that all you want to do is sleep. 

But it can be hard to sleep when the world feels dark :) And that's when you just have to remind yourself how to forget. 

I hope you enjoy this poem I wrote this summer! It says I won first place at a county fair... but I didn't have any competition. Prize was like $3? I think ;D 

I eventually plan to turn this into a song, with one of my friend's help. We'll see if that ever happens ;p 


  1. Very pretty, good job!I also like to write poems. I wish that our fair had a section for that.

    1. Thanks! I think I entered under creative writing? Our fair has so many different categories 😂😂 Just about anything can be entered

  2. This is the most beautiful poem I've ever read, Keturah :)

    Heehee, my county fair's cash prizes are not that much better.


    1. Oh, thanks so much Catherine! Your comment makes me happy 😁 Lol! I think it must just be a county fair thing ;)

  3. This is so pretty, thanks for sharing!

Y'all give me the boost to write the next post (I'm one of those weird extroverted writers). Without readers you can't have writers! Enjoy today; smile! ;D
