A Headful Of Thoughts

Rating: 3.9
 


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

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? Yes it happens with me too. A beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing

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. Yes this is my experience. i also suffer with so many thoughts and imaginations in the brain and at night suddenly get up to jot down the feelings, emotions, and words. thank you for this poem.. tony
