Nightwrite II

I couldn't sleep
so wrote instead
to get the words
out from my head
The night was hot
the air was still
and slumber failed
completely 'til
the early hours
and cooler times
when I had written
all my lines

    Ooh, I definitely resonate with this. I’ve had nights like that occasionally where I wake up and I feel the tendency to write; all is still and quiet, my cat is beside me, and I’m typing away on the screen to satisfy the writing bug that won’t let me go back to sleep until it’s all done. I’m still exhausted, but I can drift back to sleep with a sort of warmth and content knowing it’s finished. You depict this beautifully and it’s really evocative to me. ❤
