A Headful Of Thoughts

I'm lying here, wide awake
Trying hard to get some sleep;
But my brain is totally buzzing,
So it's useless counting sheep!

My mind is manically racing,
Thinking of words and ideas;
I think of the sad poem that I just wrote,
And my eyes suddenly fill up with tears.

I need to get some sleep,
As I'm actually pretty tired;
But my brain is so alive:
Like, it's been electrically wired!

Many times, I've had new thoughts,
And jumped out of my cosy bed,
To quickly grab a pen and paper,
And jot them down before they leave my head.

Is this a common problem,
Which all writers share?
Do they, too, wake up the next day
Feeling a little worse for wear?

    I think of things to write when I am in bed but by the time I get downstairs I've forgotten them. Have you read my sonnet On Sleep, it runs along the same theme. NIce one Angela

    woa, sounds familiar, a hundred million words flying through your head like migrating flocks in winter, sometimes so hard to reach up and grab them before they disapear into the wild blue, nice writing, cheers

  • Sally Plumb Plumb (6/29/2012 10:03:00 AM)

    I used to get up in the early hours to write. I am sluggish now like my writing.

  • Robert Cheruiyot (6/29/2012 7:27:00 AM)

  • Captain Cur (6/28/2012 3:34:00 PM)

    Aye, I have a similar problem
    but I will differentiate for my pirate lot
    when I hear that majestic hymn
    reaching for my quill
    I am flung out of my swinging cot!
    Loved the poem!
    Read 'Pirate's Block' if you want a giggle.

  • Valerie Dohren (6/28/2012 2:54:00 PM)

    Definitely a writer's problem I would say - I keep a pen and notebook by my bed so at least I don't have to get up. Very well written and rhymed, worth your loss of sleep! !
