The poem(s) are below...



there is a little madness that sleeps inside my head
and it awakes and talks to me each night I go to bed

it speaks to me of heroes and the journeys that they take
from quiet sleep in forests deep it begs me now awake 

its gentle tugs pull back the sheets as if by unseen hand
and whispers softly in my ear oh yes I understand

adventures unbelievable in wondrous lucid dreams 
and there be dragons there to slay l wonder what that means

I now look forward to the night and madness as a friend
and should I die before I wake it may not be the end

for now there is a place I’ve seen just past the forest stand
where madness and adventure wait beyond the things of man

    I like this! I never thought of our dreams as madness; but, I guess when they keep you up or it excites you to the point that you can't get back to sleep that makes sense. I love that your poem takes something simple out of life and makes it sound do poetic and beautiful. Congratulations on getting featured this week!

    A very well constructed couplet, Michael. Great feeling...wonderful rhythm. Thank you for your kind comment on my sonnet. I see talent in your words - I hope you remain here at PSoup as an inspiration for all to see. BTW - madness is the quiet sign of genius. Peace always, John
