(Poem 3) 25 Poems in 24 Hours


Poem 3 – 02:00 16-05-2017



Two of the clock

And I’m liable to be awake

Before a working day;

And before time.

Why is it that sleep

Is so unobtainable 

When it is needed the most?
Why do I lay here
Considering sketches and words

That I really need to scribe

Or lose forever?
Whenever, I lose an idea
That seems like a winner

I feel a sense of loss

And like a beginner

That never keeps a notepad and pen

By the bedside

For moments

When

They are really needed.
After all these years

Still, the habit is not always heeded

And ‘lost’

To my cost

Is the rhyming wit

And the poem within it.

  1. perhaps a tape recorder to verbalize the thoughts whilst in the depths of your boudoir?
