N is for Nightmare – Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

N is for Nightmare – Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

Now, if I could just slip into a restful sleep for one night. Ever feel that way? Sleeplessness is a nightmare indeed. 


Nevermore may I nod off.
In my dreams, the beast may scoff.
Give me rest; need forty winks.
Help! My form is filled with kinks.
Tell soft stories; banish boos.
Make my mind see merry news.
All my energies are naught.
Rest retreats as afterthought.
Eerie sights mean slumber’s shot.

  1. I have suffered fairly badly from insomnia in the past and it really is horrible. Thankfully I don't have much trouble with it nowadays, but it does strike occasionally...and it usually takes me a while to get to sleep!

  2. Love your acrostic poem about insomnia being a nightmare. I totally agree. Good one!
