Nighttime

The fan that runs beside me is to keep the quiet down
Thoughts come an invade me when my feet are off the ground

The cat purrs lightly
The clocks ticks precisely

Straining to hear nothing
To avoid my mind discussing

Silence is not deafening
Your real thoughts are threatening

There are no bumps in the night
Just unwanted hindsight

Trapped with your mind, no escape
Your life appears on video tape

Don't think about this, don't think about that
Imagine nothing, only black

Slowly your mind will stop the scan
It finally kicks in, your clonazepam

I have to congratulate you as well, but you selected monorhyme as the form for your poem. Monorhyme means identical rhyme on every line. The P.S has a great example. Your poem is a great couplet but it is not monorhyme...... Pashang

Nice poem...it says a lot "Imagine ...black" If only we could enjoy the peaceful night, chasing all the thoughts. Congrats on your placement.
