Cold, salty wind inflates my lungs; I watch the muddied sea crash on pebbles.

Insomnia
My body has a nasty habit of waking me at ungodly hours. Usually between four and five in the morning I jolt awake and make a futile attempt to get back to sleep. Then thoughts whirl around my fertile brain and I’ll scribble a note on my hand.
After an hour I’ll rise, shower and log on. After the usual web distractions, words appear. Words inspired by insomnia and a fevered mind. Could be musing about football or my next bestseller!
So it’s insomnia that inspires me. I will be a genius when I have something to worry about!

Losing myself in Middle Earth, re-tracing the well-worn paths, submerging myself in the Numinous. I finish the chapter feeling refreshed, renewed and peaceful.

I am inspired to write when my emotions just can’t be contained within me any longer. If I don’t get them out, they will build up and destroy me from the inside out. I write to express how I feel. I communicate with the world through my poetry. It is my way of letting the world know what I am going through.
Putting my thoughts into words helps me make sense of the madness that goes on inside my head and heart. Sometimes it is the only way I can fully understand myself. By writing it all down, it helps me come to terms with whatever my current circumstances are.
The best part is when I write a poem and then read a similar poem that someone else wrote. It reassures me that I am not alone and there are others going through the same thing. It reminds me that I am only human.
By transcribing my emotions into poetry, it helps the process of getting over them and moving on. It is therapeutic and helps my heart begin to heal. I would much rather write everything down than let it bottle up inside me.
Dan is a freelance writer, copyeditor, blogger, screenwriter, and poet. His poetry can be found at Missing The Muse

Finding stillness and peace, even as my muscles ache and nag; standing barefoot in the grass doing tai chi.

Managed a 7 minute walk out in the lane today. 3.5 mins out, 3.5 mins back. Totally exhausted.
