Insomnia This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Seemingly still,

absolutely alone,

thinking thoughts,

about life and love

and nonfat brownies,

at three o'clock

in the moon-lit morning.

The confusion of my room

blocks out the sounds

of whispering trees.

No one answers

the questions I'm asking,

and I wonder

if anyone's listening.

I love being awake in the middle of the night! It's like the whole world is dead except for you...this poem reflects that feeling really well :)
