Sometimes sleep doesn’t find me…

I know many of us lie in our beds at night replaying  the day or coursing through the memories in our heads. Some of us mask our pain well, while others fight through the urges to release pent up demons. We lie in our beds peering at the ceiling, listening at the noises that sound out in the background. Some of us are taken back to dark places in our lives and that pain forms in our eyes and now we lie on tear soaked pillows. We get that feeling in our throat where former pain is trying to force it’s way out of our mouths. We wore masked smiles during the day and displayed happiness only to lay in the bed lonelier than before. We shake our heads and become fed up that we were led out of the storm but still wet from the rain. And we just lie and wonder when will the clouds that hover over us  completely dry out. When will this happiness that we seek be found. And we wonder if true love is written in those clouds, because where I stand only darkness is found. Sometimes sleep doesn’t find me…just this empty bed to which I am bond! -Valerie Rene’a

          1. Things have been great, spending a lot of time writing and creating but not posting too much. At least I have plenty in inventory. 🙂 How has your book been doing? I’m really fascinated by that journey…and want to walk that path one day.

            1. That’s good to hear. I haven’t written for my new book in a minute, I can’t seem to get in the mood. I really need to get it together I’m like two to three chapters of completion. I can’t wait for you to get started. 💋
