The Words in my Head

I went to bed...
But the words in my head
Would not be still
And against my will...
They clamored to be
Written for you to see.

I tossed in bed…
But the words in my head
Stayed wide awake
So for sanity’s sake
I caught every one
Now my poem is done!

I got out of bed…
But the words in my head
Had gone to sleep
So without a peep
I crawled back in
And with a wide grin
I bade them goodnight
Closed my eyes tight
For soon they’d awake
And my life overtake!

    Did they wake you again / drive you to pick up a pen / and command you to write humorous verse / did you politely give in / write more poems with a grin / Till such time that you could finally sleep in? Love your poem Eileen. I can relate.

    Jon.....you just brighten up my days! Thanks! I get so frustrated when I don't get the words down quickly enough because.......they disappear never to be found again! Good to have someone who can relate so well! Have a great day! :)

    Thoughts and ideas often come after you have gone to bed - head is relaxed and you are thinking clearly, I feel the same way. -Have a pen and paper by your side and write the keyword. - When tomorrow comes, it is forgotten. - Very well written. - Have a nice day. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)

    Thanks ever so much, Anne Lise. :) I'm sometimes in the shower when thoughts come to me and it's hard to wait till I can get out to write it all down! Have a lovely day!
