Nightbook Poem

Updated on March 6, 2015

Walking is like reading,

and during that contemplation is the thoughts that I live in the daytime,

Events of months ago come back to me as I read the nightbook,

Its chapters do not close

Its memories remain open in a book I cannot turn.

Reading the thoughts on these pages I walk through its memories;

on pages that I cannot control or turn,

Until the book until the book closes itself

Only then do I sleep to then live inside the nightbook

      @mikielike Poetry writing is all about writing about how feel about a particular. In my everyday life I look for inspiration to write poems. I am not a poet but I find that the only I can express how I feel is sometimes through poetry. Music is one of the key influences in my writing...:)
