In bed now - poetry

Updated on June 25, 2017

I'm in bed now


The greatest inspirations come

At night

I want to get up

And write

I keep the pen and paper next to me

Beside the lamp light

Sleep is in the mind

It's said

You just need to clear it

But I guess


I do not want

To hear it

I'd like to write

Some thoughts down

While I'm still thinking

Before the thoughts

Get scattered


And I start sinking

Into dream land

But actually

that would be okay because

Inspiration comes there too

It's true

I wake up

And write it down


After having rested my head

I say to myself

I remember that dream

It was one that made me scream

I think, let me discuss that dream

While the memory of it

Is still fresh

Before it is gone

deep into the recesses of my head

To make room for the dreams

Of tomorrow night

Sometimes the dreams

Do come around again

In reoccurrence

I find that quite peculiar indeed

      Inspiration can truly come from dreams. I have created some art that came from dreaming about stamps that I had been collecting for years. Nice that you have been inspired to write down some of your dreams.

      This was an interesting poem and I'm sure most people can relate. I often grab a pen and paper as soon as I wake up. Feeling the urge to write, or capture a dream before it fades away. Good job.
