Not Just my Verse, your Two, Two, Too: Insomnia

Welcome to ….

Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!
This is the brainchild of Rory at a guycalledbloke

These are his first four lines of the latest verse doing the rounds

Ode To The Insomniac!

Why do evade me so? It makes for no sense,
In truth, to do so unkindly and unwarranted, is nonsense!
I have tried counting all sorts, from stars to wide eyed sheep!
Yet still you , yes you decline me shut eye and valuable sleep!

Our additions so far:

 Jay-lin of The Wonderful and Wacky World of one Single Mum

Tossing and turning pulling blankets near,
What is that noise that I hear?
It is not the sandman come for me,
Why won’t you let me sleep dear?    

Gary of Bereaved Single Dad

Countless late night biscuits and black coffee,
Walking around like a spaced out zombie,
Listening to Cohen and Floyd on endless loop,
Convincing myself that no sleep is common in my age group.

Lorraine of Blind Wilderness

I toss and I turn
Oh when will I learn
That sleep is at bay
On an Away Day

Lorraine then kindly tagged me via Rory:

The stars are so bright at this time of night,
I look forward to slumbering deep,
As I close my tired eyes, what a surprise,
The brain wakes and I can’t get to sleep!

I’m tagging Teresa aka The Haunted Wordsmith

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Good addition!

  2. Hey Di, many thanks for picking up the tag by Lorraines and reading through my scrambled nonsense 🙂

    Great addition 🙂

  3. The Twas one went dead because of WP’s ping backs not working, and those writing it sometimes not including a double ping back like you have done here today. As in you have notified me with the link as well. As it is your ping backs work for me, but many ping backs are going missing. If they don’t do that, then the poem has to be found, seen who was tagged, that blog has to be checked all the way back to when they were tagged to see if they responded, you go back and foirth for 15 minutes per tag and realised they don’t want to play or have forgotten. So then, a new tag is selected by me, in this case Beckie, who has just released her new verse and hey presto, you see the comments again, it’s not confusing is it ha ha 🙂
