... " I Just CAN'T SLEEP " ... !!!

Because of THE HEAT On The Third of July ...
The Sun's Up HIGH And Shining BRIGHT ... !!!

In The Year One AFTER ... 2K5 ...
I've Had A RESTLESS SLEEPLESS Night ... !!!!!!
Because of THE HEAT That's NOT SO Sweet ... !!!!!!

I Was REALLY In NEED of A Good Nights' SLEEP ... !!!!!!
And This Is Why I've Written This Piece of Poetry ...

Giving It The Title ... " I Just Can't Sleep " ... !!!

Because I'm HOT and BOTHERED ...
As If PURSUED By Coppers ... !!!

Trying To STOP Criminals Who ROB ...
MONEY ... Like The Sleep I've Been ROBBED Of ... !!!!!

On Streets Their Moves And Plots Are HOT ... !!!!!!
Like Girls Who've Got Those SEXY Bods' ... !!!
That Make Men Want To STOP and DROP ...

...... " Complimentary Speech " ...... !!!

So That She's There SHARING His Bed ...
WITHOUT The Sheets On Nights of HEAT ... !!!!!

Getting FRIENDLY ... KNOW What I Mean ... !!!

See Girlies Like THESE ...
Are Sometimes Why ... " I Just Can't Sleep " ... !!!

They RUN Through My Mind Causing SLEEPLESS Nights ...
Because of HOW They Run Their Lives ... ?!?

And CHOOSE SLY Guys Who USE ... " Designs " ...
CONTRIVED By LIES To KEEP Them STANDING By Their Side ...

EVEN When They Make Them CRY ... !!!

DON'T Get Me Wrong That's THEIR PROBLEM ... !!!
But When Women TRY To Defend These Men Whose Love Is ALL Pretence ...

My SLEEPLESS Nights HELP Me To Write ...
Poetic Lines of THIS HERE Type That Move Along Just Like Sad Songs ...

..... " I Just Can't Sleep " ..... !!!

When Poetry Through Words Like These Run Through My Mind CONTINUALLY ... !!!!!!
Until My Pen Sets My Thoughts FREE Like Something Simply ... MEANT TO BE ... !!!!!

It's Now The Way My Thought Waves SPEAK ...
When Life DISPLAYS It's Troughs And PEAKS ...
I See This IN How Youngsters Be ...
These Days It Seems They're NOT Happy ... !!!

Relationships That Leave Them STRIPPED ...
of POSITIVES ... That Help UPLIFT ... !!!

Boyfriends And Girlfriends Mums And Dads ...
Stories I Hear Now Leave Me Sad When Things They Do Leave People TRAPPED ... !!!

I DON'T Lose Sleep Over THESE Things ... !!!
Because That's LIFE And It Has Some SWINGS ... !!!
My Mind REWINDS Feelings That ... RING ...
Like Bells And Chimes That Help Design ...
Poetic Rhymes ... of THIS HERE Type ...

TODAY As I've Said Is The Third of July ...
And I've Left My Bed To Sit And Write ...

Because My Mind Would NOT Recline ...
UNTIL This Poem Was ... " Designed " ...

I'm CLOSE Now To The Finishing Line ... !!!!!

But NOT Just YET If You Haven't Guessed ...

.......... " I Just Can't Sleep ! " ..........

Because The Heat's AFFECTING Me ...
But ALSO Cos' A Young Lady Has Got My Mind ALL TWISTED See ...

She's A REAL CUTEY' INNOCENT And Sweet ...

But She's In Love With THIS Young Gun ...
Who CLAIMS He'll COMMIT SUICIDE If She Decides To CUT Their Ties ... !!!

I Told Her ...

.... "Baby, that's not right, and is clearly not love,
.... If you've had enough, you've had enough !
.... You should think about this, he'd be being selfish, if he did such a thing !
.... What kind of man would force your hand, to stay with him, on this basis ?"

Her Friends And I Explained That Love ...
Should NOT Be Tied By THREATS and LIES ... !!!

Because In Time She May Just Find ...
That She'll Feel Like She's Had NO LIFE ... !!!!!!

She Left Because He Called Her TWICE ... !!!
But NOT In A Way That Made Her Day ... !!!
It Seemed More Like He was ... Calling TIME ...
On When Her Night Should FINALISE ... !!!

She LOVES Him But WITHIN Her Mind ...
APPEARS To Hide A FLOOD of Doubts With RISING TIDES ... !!!

When She Left I Gave Her A Hug ...
One That FILLED My Heart With ... " LOVE " ...

My Feelings For Her ARE Oceans DEEP ... !!!
But It Seems She'll Just Be ... " In My Dreams " ...

Because This Boy She Will NOT Leave ...
This Is How She Makes Me ... " FEEL " ... !!!

She Makes Me Weak Just Like The HEAT That's Made Me Write ...
This Lyrical Piece of Poetry That's Simply Called ....

................. " I Just Can't Sleep ! " .........................
