Time for the October Poetry Writing Month at #OctPoWriMo!
Theme for 2018 is a one lined quote that gives me anode on the Poem – These quote are copied from Goodreads.com – tag poetry.
“I know you’re tired but come, this is the way.” ― Jalalu’l-din Rumi
Bad things happen when you are tired, they say
Just let me be for now, I need to rest.
Rest a little, but you must keep moving
there is no time to spend wastefully.
Exhaustion slowly taking over my tired mind
Show me the way to solitude please. I need it
It is hours that I have been lying here awake
a dream coming on, I’m in a hopeless state
A perfect place to sleep in those shadows
My insecurities within the tiredness show
Sleep didn’t honour me with it’s presence
So I will follow you, which way do I go now.
