A intense poem has been contributed by fellow insomniac MyTravails

Did u see the tower come crashing down to the ground,
All the crystals splattered in and around;
Oh why did u have to bomb the tv station,
Now no one has entertainment,
Ha but that was a good move,
The stars had all lost their groove
And now you can see the people on the rooftop,
Wondering what to talk,
Ha its funny to see,
People being awkward in holding hands like u n me

Did u see the tower come crashing down to the ground,
All the crystals splattered in and around;
Its not like the people don’t know,
Everybody has learnt to lead nobody to follow
Ha if only people were people,
Would you think they would still kiss as little…
And now that life has come full circle
The joke’s on us and we are caught in the girdle
Ha its misty eyed to see
You’re too tired of life to love me

Silence Speaks…

A beautiful poem from our first contributor and fellow insomniac Arti Honrao:

Silence Speaks…

Silence speaks to me,
Louder than words
At night everything seems so surreal
The starry night, the moon
And the breeze that plays with my hair
Nature soothes my heart
And I forget all the pain

I see her staring at me
With envious look in her eyes
She knows I am happy
And I know she is not
I simply smile and look at the moon…
my reflection
in the windowpane hides in the fog

Jaagte Raho: the first post

Since this is our first, I thought it was appropriate to cross-post these comic strips from my personal comic blog

I’ve been an insomniac for as long as I can remember.

These cartoons are dedicated to all those who have trouble sleeping…


Counting sheep never helps me sleep!
