Thorny Poetry - 47. Bees

i lie down

then comes the noise

buzzing

like busy, busy bees

filling my head with

the worries of the day

plans for tomorrow

things i want to say

all my sorrow

and sleep is lightyears away

 

a million little thoughts

float around the surface of my mind

daring me to reach for them

so they can drag me under

caught in the undertow

where i swim in circles

chasing thoughts

 

i can see the surface above me still

the moon shines down into the murky water

where i swim

only just out of reach is she

and i’m stuck down here

brain buzzing

with busy, busy bees

and sleep is lightyears away

Depression doesn't help with writing prose, but I feel like I often get poetry out of it, somehow...

there is poetry everywhere, not just in dewy sunlit meadows ... even the darkest places have something to say.  Thank you for saying it. xo
