Troubled Sleep

Vestigial dreams like drunken pulp
opaque ghostly sunflower roots deep
left stricken with a maniacal yearning
plethora of superfluous visions exhort
thoughts explained by no known syllogism
haphazardly infecting your slumber
as if collaborated in this conundrum
with nightmares received as payment
no balmy mood to greet your awakening
indefatigable schlemiel with restless sleep
insipid despondency worn like a chain
materialistic worries met with reality
emotions as toxic as a cashew nut shell
just another night of troubled sleep

    We have poems of similar titles. I wrote my version of this one when I was in High School.

    Another well written poem Justin!

    “thoughts explained by no known syllogism
    haphazardly infecting your slumber”

    I can relate to these lines.
