English #frapalymo Day 18 – Sleepy

A burning sensation
Behind my eyes
I’m a slug moping
Through the day
Visions dance slowly across my mind
My eyes gently close
Blissful darkness envelops me
For a split second
Maybe two
Before my eyes roll open to
So many hours to go
Before I rest my weary bones

#frapalymo is hosted by @FrauPaulchen and is translated by Bee on her blog Just Fooling Around with Bee.  Today’s prompt is “so much tiredness made my face move inside”.


Feel free to play along.  Here are Bee’s suggestions:

  1. read the translation of @FrauPaulchen’s prompt
  2.  write your English (German if you can/want to) poem on your blog and tag it with “English #frapalymo.”
  3. use the “English #frapalymo” picture if you want to
  4. set a link to the translated prompt here on Bee’s blog
  5. visit other links posted here and if you want to/can those posted with the hashtag #fapalymo on Twitter
  6. The Bee will post your link to the German #frapalymo and translate for you if you want to. Now go, create and have lots of fun!

  1. You captured it so beautifully. I am here just thinking how nice to shortly crawl into my bed and hope sleep comes with a night of peace and good dreams.

  3. Beautifully written! Describes perfectly what I’ve been feeling these last few weeks. Makes me crave my bed even more. I especially love the last few lines. When you finally get that much needed rest, it definitely feels like you’ve only been asleep a couple seconds. 🙂
