Dream writer

Why is it
That the words fall into place
The second my head hits the pillow?
The days events,
Play through my head like a song.
As if I am lulling myself to sleep.
The slightest little movement,
Sends them scurrying like mice.
Sometimes when I dream, I write.
And in my dreams
The words flow so smoothly.
I recite them over and over.
I even write them down,
Reading them a hundred times.
But when the morning comes,
They fade with the darkness.

    i can totally relate to this poem! you've expressed, so well, something which i'm sure happens to so many of us. i do keep a little pad and pencil by my bed and sometimes i force myself to get up and jot something down. often, though, i'm just too tired and those words get lost. naturally, they were the best ones!
