When Harry noticed that his girlfriend was talking in her sleep, he decided to write them down. After taking notes for weeks, he turned sleep talk into short visual poems.

One user said, “Please make a book out of it and publish it!” 10/10, would definitely buy! Another wrote: “This is why I sleep in French. I have a feeling that is also why my husband decided to learn French …”
A third user said, “First, I need more of these products in my life! Second, are you single now for putting this out there? Yet another asked, “Have the editors contacted you yet?” “
Harry said he was inspired by another Twitter user who shared poems written in the style of Rupi Kaur. The poems were created by their roommate from words they would say while playing GTA.
Harry added that he had sought his girlfriend’s consent to post his poems inspired by his sleep talk on social media.
