Night is Young

Every night
before I sleep
get a feeling
am young still

as I slumber deep
can no more sleep
with open eyes
i sweep across my life
as it passes by

Then I twist and twirl
my body says stay still

no one knows
whether I am alive
my night passes
hoping I will live

Though deaf
I can hear clearly
the sun's rays
smile at me

Style / type: 
Free verse
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Daily I see dawn when I go to sleep Lonely nights
Editing stage: 


The last two lines in the stanza before the last to avoid some repetition

(the sun rays say
wake up Lovedy)

A perfect ending.... I really like it.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

I would just tweak a couple of words to polish it up. In the second strophe you have two "buts" that can easily be removed. There are several extra "buts", I would remove most of them. TorT. Enjoyed a lot lovedly.
