Insomnia — A Book of Poetry is now available.
Insomnia is a collection of poetry by author Michelle C. Hillstrom.
It is at night when we lay in the dark, waiting to fall asleep, that our thoughts can drift off and begin thinking about the things we try to push away in the light of day.
The dark thoughts and feelings. The experiences we don’t want to remember. The dark begets dark.
Is Insomnia to blame for the thoughts that creep in at night or is the Insomnia a side effect of a dark mind?
The poems within this anthology are late night insomniatic musings covering topics of relationships, love, pain, creativity, the Marine Corps, and life.
Sexual assault, depression, and suicide are also frequent topics. Because of this we wish to inform possible readers to proceed with caution. Michelle C. Hillstrom believes that these are timely topics that unfortunately too many people, including herself, have been touched by.
Michelle C. Hillstrom wrote these poems spanning a time period of seventeen years. Many were written in the middle of the night when her brain refused to quiet down and allow her to sleep — thus the inspiration for the title.
We hope you enjoy: Insomnia.
