Last Night's Blunder!

It was night, I thought of writing a poem,

comfortably sat on a chair,

Be it a love poem, a poem of fun or sorrow

- I didn't really care.


Many themes had entered my head,

It would be so easy to write!

My pen would run so fast on paper,

I wouldn’t stop for a nail bite.


Soft music in the background

enhanced my writing mood,

Should I think of the title first?

Well, I thought that idea was good.


I closed my eyes to think of a title

and that was the blunder I made,

My eyes were heavy, I fell asleep,

resting on the desk my head.


My wife woke me up and said,

‘For God’s sake now go to bed,

What you need is a good night’s sleep,

tomorrow you write instead.’


Next morning I could not recollect

the theme of the poem I had in mind,

My wife understood my sadness,

she cheered me up, she was so kind!


She said “ All your last night’s thoughts

May well re-enter your head,

I smiled at my wife, with a cup of tea

sat beside her on the bed.


She said ‘ You need to arrest your thoughts

as soon as they come to your mind,

And give a title at the end, my dear,

that will be easy you will find.’


My wife’s advice made good sense,

she takes interest in what I write,

Seldom I don’t agree what she suggests

Very often her ideas are bright.


I now carry a Notebook and pen,

No matter where I go,

Thoughts may come and disappear quickly

You just never know!


Last night’s episode was sad, it is true,

but gave me some food for thought,

To write a poem about the episode itself

would be an another plot

Again really funny and really useful. This are exactly the tips I use when writing, the only difference is that I write on my computer rather than in my notebook. The only tip I can give you is to watch on some spots where your poem lacks musicality. It's not really that much of a deal, but it would make your poem much better and easier for the reader to read it. Hope you don't get me wrong, I love your poems, just had to give you my word about that :)

@LazyAndAmbitious - So sorry, somehow I had not noticed your comment earlier. Thank you so much my friend for the suggestion you have made. I shall definitely re-read the poem and see what can be done. Oh no, I didn't get you wrong. Your kind suggestion/advice has been well received and appreciated. Trust you are all well. I take this opportunity to wish you a Very Happy & Prosperous New Year.
