Contributor Series 9: If Men Had Ears
By Nate Spears
Music to my ears; the sound of sleep
I’m so, so tired,
Fired by rest, employed by tired
Boom, boom, my heart beats; the noise it makes,
It’s keeping me up, silence;
I can’t sleep, shut up!
A million thoughts a minute, keeping me up
Reins rest; I need it
Boom, boom goes the sound of my heart
I can’t sleep.
Nate Spears’ most recent poem to appear here was Sixty (April 2011).
With great passion you have explained it to a perfectly. Thank you.
“Fired by rest, employed by tired” I love that!
