The Struggle of the Missing Piece

A Poem By Sarah Liz // 2/12/2016

Staring blankly into the starlight
Yearningly, longingly, tearfully.
Watching the moon meander ‘cross the sky,
I’m thinking and dreaming of you.

Insomnia’s got a hold on me
ADD’s been hounding me
My brain is playing tricks on me
Sweating, striving, pushing.

You’re there—I know you’re there
But who are you, which one?
Darkness shrouds my forward vision
I squint—and stare in vain.

When my crazy brain’s in order
It plays a broken record
I don’t know what or why or how
But you’re on it, that’s for sure.

Very nice! The rhythm seems

Very nice! The rhythm seems just right, except the very last line feels like it needs one or two more syllables to flow better. Just a thought. :)
This is pretty relatable! I remember feeling like that lots of times. Thankfully not anymore. :)

I am an overcomer through Christ alone, for the glory of God alone.

Thank you! Yes, so many young

Thank you! Yes, so many young adults struggle like this :) But the victory is in Christ! And you're right about the rhythm. It's a little off. I'll have to work on that.
