Day Twenty Three

NaPoWriMo 2016

 Day Twenty Three

 The prompt at NaPoWriMo today was to write a sonnet.

I took the end line words from Shakespeare’s sonnet LXI

and the (sort of) idea behind it and came up with this:


Do you plan to keep your image open

So sleeplessness will keep me up all night?

Do you think that my sleep will be broken

With images you send to tease my sight?


Do you project your spirit out from thee

So many miles from home my face to pry?

To check me out and steal some time from me

Who knows the measure of your jealousy?


Okay, though much, your love is not so great

My love for you alone keeps me awake

The things I think that does my sleep defeat

Tuned into you watching out for your sake:


One eye on me while you wake up elsewhere

A foreign vacant land without me near
