Poem: Half-Nap


Sleep slap,

Down for the count,

But it’s a short count,

Sweaty sides,

Sweaty mind,

Slushed and rebooting.

Too comfortable,

Lying there,

Sleep claimed,

My head and hair,

Pulled me down,

Into lovely dreams,

Awaken later,


A brief break,

Not a thing called sleep,

Makes me feel a little rested,

But not fully.

Get back up,

Check the clock,

Only an hour,

Thank the gods.

Back to work,

With a goal now,

To sleep proper,

Next to someone,

I adore.

A few things to do,

Then back I go,

To the sleep,

The dream show,

While my body is in—

A place I know,

That’s safe.

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.”
