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
I know the feeling..Great write, enjoyed very much. Blessings, AA
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
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! !
Highly relatable experience nicely put together. A beautiful work of art. Thanks for sharing and do remain enriched.

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.
