When your hope is shattered And nothing is what it seems Don’t you quit and say goodbye Keep going, keep going And soon you’ll see- the person you’re going to be at the place you’re meant to be You know it’s hard but you know the way- You have to keep going You have to keep going
winds will be rough nights will be tough but don’t you kneel Be firm – Be free come what may, no matter how you feel today even clouds descend to darker skies but, tomorrow too, the sun will rise this storm will blow out and you’ll still be here All you have to do is keep going, you have to keepgoing
Hello dear friends. Sadly, I haven’t written any fresh poems this year, but today I had an urge to post something on my blog.
I’m sharing few poems straight out of my drafts. I never had guts to post them because I considered them stupid or tad naive 👦 Most of them are my preliminary work. And they don’t necessarily follow any particular rhyming scheme.
1. A night time Melody 🌃
Humming breeze swirls in the twilight Family of Cuckoo birds is tucked in tight Crickets sing to serenade the night Sleeps the crimson petal, now the white
A Mother sings a lullaby not so far Star shines brighter in the darkest hour I keep my dreams alive in pretty jars To sing a lullaby of – A night time melody strummed on Angel’s guitar
2. Poor Angel 👼
Light’s gone, day’s end. Dubious nights, Tired of – all the fights. Intense emotions, Craving in. Been this way, Since eighteen. Sinking slowly, In a daydream. Perhaps, the world is way too cold, For angels to fly. Save that poor thing, with wings so white. Cuz’ this time, he might fade away, Right in front of Your eyes!
3. A Ghost 👻?
I was once a benevolent mind. Then It happened on one pallid night. Something quelled my ardour, Making me guise around .
lingering in hypnosis, and sunken with a dubios frown. I would run like a wild berserk, Up and down, through an old rot town.
thought i was doomed. Can’t say a word, until it resumed. Hunted and smacked me down. Heard a Knock, knock!
Who’s there I said ? Seemed like a joke to me. I chuckled with a little fright. But then something happened to my delight.
It threw something at me, and said. Have you lost your groove? You’re not the same one i left, one year ago!
*Nah I’ve not changed. It’s just my new groove. Leave me alone! Or I’ll crack your bone
I cried with a plight cause he said, He was staying till the sunrise. And this morning I woke up at night, Fervent, sane and a little surprised.
Now I’m writing this poem and wondering What happened and why? Was it a freaking ghost or just, The voices in my little mind?
PS: In this one I was clearly trying to use some variety of vocabulary. Guess what? I should stick to simple words🥺
4. A Morning poem 🌻
The sun rose to greet the day and set a golden blaze across the sky.
The birds chirped their morning greetings as I opened up my eyes.
The wind softly rustles through the trees smelling of flowers and morning dew.
As I awoke to this view my thoughts turned to you.
Good Morning dear friend
I hope that this day is one that’s just as nice for you
5. HER 🤕🥵
It’s biting cold Yet a scene so gorgeous No traffic no crowd In peace and solitude far from pandemonium of city life I am watching the sunset from my abode, a little house in the nearby hill.
I try to type this lousy poem but then the Hot Cofee that I just made Is waiting for me to get sipped I might take a nap In the cozy blanket that my mom gave me Some bygone autumn. Also My car’s broke I wish to take her to the repairs someday it stays there rusted in the garage
Oh! It’s a perfect evening lazier than i thought it to be but what can you expect from a life in the woods? Sometimes i do feel a rush of her lyrical laughter igniting sparks in My imagination I might well write A Song for her But my frosted musical notes are drifting in broken chords. Once a sweet symphony, now a sour moon
The feeling gets stronger as I type the poem her thoughts All along I thought I found someone who would stay through all the crap, Perhaps for within her was a pattern so complex I never really understand, but when the moon used to come up, something pulled her to me and me to her but this love was one sided for in no way she was mine only that I was hers When she said it was over, it was more painful than a heart attack And right now it feels like my life has paused.
Ere the dusk touches my ears lets fast forward to the closure it’s time to put memories of her behind me, To look to the future, that is bright and free. Later I can die happily in these yellow woods But Now is the time to move ahead For there are miles to go into the night And there are miles to go to reach the light
C’mon Guys, Let’s stop here. I have many more poems like these. I’d love to read your feedback, then I might compile a part two.
I’m anxious Lying here, alone with my fuzzy thoughts, I search through the babel to make sense of it all. My heart beats faster the farther I fall, Stifling me slowly in a sea of my faults. I spiral downward with every regret, All the memories and pain I could never forget. Intense with shame and hate all the same, I close my eyes only to wake in my bed. Stress welded into my bones Alone with my thoughts, Alone once again… My words and rhymes refrain I can’t decipher them at all I’m hitting them, the walls You’re evanescing and that’s something I can’t bare This wasn’t a mundane dream it was a nightmare.
How to avoid Nightmares and Insomnia?
1. Stick to an everyday sleeping pattern:
Being overtired can prompt bad dreams so attempt and confine your late nights to the end of the week and treat yourself to an early night sometimes. In the event that you go for a consistent sleeping pattern and hit the bed each night at the same time, this also could extraordinarily lessen the event of bad dreams. You should also avoid high-energy drinks, soft drinks, alcohol, coffee or tea, in the evenings. These contain caffeine that will keep you awake long into the night.
2. Keep away your phone:
When you curl up in bed each night, do you take your smartphone with you? Most people do. It might seem like the perfect opportunity to check your email, see what your friends are up to on social media or check tomorrow’s weather forecast and the list goes on.
Don’t do it.
Studies show that blue light emitted from your mobile device can damage your retina.
Also, it disrupts the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates the body’s sleep cycle. Not only will this result in more sleepless nights and fatigue, but can also lead to a variety of health problems including heart disease, weight gain, depression, and anxiety.

Ultimate rule: Always listen to mom.
3. Try imagery rehearsal treatment:
Imagery rehearsal treatment is a type of cognitive therapy which has been found very effective in reducing nightmares in PTSD and insomnia patients.
For example, if you’re dreaming you’re being chased, you could imagine the monster that’s chasing you, when it catches you, saying “tag, you’re it” and it’s really a game of tag.
If you’re dreaming that you’re falling, you could imagine that a parachute opens up and saves you.
If a couple of ghosts are frightening you, try being bold and try to frighten them instead.
If Zombies are rushing to eat you, use your gaming skills and keep on shooting them until you slaughter hell out of ’em. Or, run your car over a zombie. You can basically use every privilege in your dreams. Trust me. Just learn every day, take control, master these above techniques, and you’re ready to roll. Booyah!
