Poem: Sleepy Girlfriend

Opposites her and I,

When it comes to getting shut-eye,

I can’t seem to drift,

Off to sleep,

Without a solid shift of staring,

At a screen,

She on the other hand,

Could probably fall asleep on her hand—

And not have much of an issue.

A caffeine addict and her routine sleep-deprived,

Is it any wonder we have strange habits regarding shut-eye?

But somehow it works,


It’s fine,

Because I wake her up each day,

I really don’t mind,

Because she’s the first thing I get to see,

First person with whom I get to be,

And that’s a future I love,

For both her and me.

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.” 


Let me hear your opinion.
