    Poem Commentary

    Too many nights interrupted by thoughts from a restless mind.


    A racing brain
    does not inspire
    many fruitful thoughts
    it wakens me
    from sleepy dreams
    leaving me distraught
    what will I say
    what did I do
    what really must be done
    ticking clocks
    creaking floors
    a coming morning sun
    a racing brain
    keeps me awake
    while others sleep so sound
    relaxing now
    fall back to sleep
     thoughts racing back around
    jolt me awake
    no sleeping yet
    nocturnal weary harm
    now slipping off
    dozing quiet
    hear the clock's alarm

    Those nights when sleep seems so far, so true as you write, it's just as you drift off when the alarm rings it sound.

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

    Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
