Nightly News

June 18, 2010

Sensation of falling
as my eyes close,
trying to shut out
a world gone sideways,
another incomprehensible day.

Headlines echo in darkness,
questioning the safety
of escape, plunging me
deeper into myself,
looking for peace.

As the world outside
breaks and rages,
rattling my cage
until sleep flees,
leaving me pieces
of half formed dreams.

  1. They (the media) are only trying to “capture my dime” rather than provide any meaning commentary on the world around us…it makes it difficult to sleep after watching or listening to the news…well said in this poem.
