The Words in my Head

Written by: Eileen Manassian

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!
