Writing a Comic Book Poem – Sleeping

Franklin Poems is a blog dedicated to illustrated Poetry. For this website I illustrate poems written by a poet called Franklin Fishbone. The concept is similar to Comic Book Poems in a way as we are dealing with visual poetry. Further information on this collaboration will be given on a separate blog post, but in writing Sleeping I wanted to take a poem with form and structure to convey the act of Sleeping. Sometimes sleeping can be pleasurable and other times it can be troublesome and difficult. Emotion is at the heart of the words and this should be obvious when they are read separate from the visuals.

Searching for fantastic dreams, like
they were all fading photographs
etched into a bright corner of
my skull for someone who cared so much
and listened.

My blue memories close on in
as my nerves paint a picture
and my mind searches for even more sleep.
I just want to drift and drift and drift
with you beside me.
