My Muse Once Sleeping Is Awake

I went to bed but couldn't sleep
Getting up as my thoughts run deep
I need to write, my mind's at stake
My muse once sleeping is awake

I trip on the cat, hit my head
Maybe I should go back to bed
But writing I must soon partake
My muse once sleeping is awake

At my desk now, starting to write
I will be here most of the night
I write rude poems, my mistake
My muse once sleeping is awake

I submit my poems on line
Not feeling concerned at the time
Next day displayed, a fool I make
My muse once sleeping is awake

Congrats on your win, Tania, your poem brought me a smile. If I write a poem at night I always wait a day before I post so I can re-read it in the light of day. All my best. John

Thank you Arturo, I can't take credit for the awesome line, it is one of the choices for Dear Heart's contest. I was drawn to it immediately though!
