3 A.M.

Sleep doesn’t come on this chilly fall night.

I sit, eyes wide open, wandering the room.

I watch the smoke exit my mouth.

My thoughts are of you.

Moods in grey and black.

Your silencer is on.

Back, back to where we are.

Always the same.

You will smile sweetly and kiss goodnight.

Sleep doesn’t come on this chilly fall night.


author bio:

My name is Alisha Poff. I grew up in Bluefield WV. I’ve always loved to write. Pretty much since I learned how to. I wrote alot of short stories when I was younger. I won a few awards for them. One being the Young Writer’s when I was in 3rd grade. I started writing poetry when I was 13. After I read my first Edgar Allen Poe poem. My main influence is Sylvia Plath. I love her style and her words speak to me. My inspiration comes from my life. I write about everything that has happened to me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I find it makes for good writing and release. I’m currently in college working towards a journalism degree. In my free time I enjoy laying the tarot, a bit of ghost hunting, and spending time with my loved ones. I practice Wicca. I also spend most of my time reading and of course writing.
