As I Lie In My Bed - Poem by David Darbyshire

As I lie in my Bed
All these poems run through my Head
I should get up and write them down, Instead
I go back to Bed

    The very same thing has happened to me many times. The last time was just one week ago today. I wrote a poem about the experience called 'The One that Got Away'. (Report)Reply

    I certainly can relate to this, so to solve the problem, I bought a tiny tape recorder. Now, when my night thoughts come or my early morning beauties. I just roll over and pick up my recorder and all is not forgotten. Nice poem David.---

    Sometimes it is such a waste of beautiful feelings. Falling asleep sometimes alters what you felt or thought before!

    So dang funny - and so true! lol I had one just the other night. It woke me up and I thought, 'Oh, man! That is really good. I really should write that down! ' Then I went back to sleep, and for the life of me I can't remember a LICK of what it was about! lol
