A Try At Poetry

We lay in bed side by side

My back is snuggled against your belly

Your arm is wrapped around my front

Our fingers entwined

I feel loved and protected

I close my eyes and sigh

My favorite way to fall asleep


I don’t know why, but I woke up at 3 am this morning with this poem (is it even a poem?) in my head.  I normally don’t write poetry nor do I read it so I don’t even know what to classify the above as.

What I have been trying to do is get my writing out of my head and on paper.  I have a lot of ideas swimming inside of my head that I need to get out, but I’m not sure some of the ideas are even worth writing down.  Sometimes what I feel is awesome in my head doesn’t necessarily come out as awesome on paper.

I feel I have too many essays, blog posts and other writing adventures started, but nothing is finished.  I am close to finishing some, but not others.  I am currently working on the projects that are close to being done, but the other projects that I’m not working on demand attention in my head as well.

In the past I have started writing and then quit because I was overwhelmed with too many ideas in my head.  I would start and quit.  Start and quit.  I didn’t know how to deal with current writing projects and new ideas that come into my head.

This is what I am trying to deal with right now — not to become overwhelmed.  To give myself time to work on projects and time to write notes for upcoming projects.  Basically to give all of the voices in my head a voice.

I think it’s pretty cool to wake up at 3 a.m. with the possibility of a poem in my head.  It shows me I’m expanding and I’m excited about that.

I’m happy with possible poem.  What are your thoughts on my possible poem?  Is it good?  Does it suck?  Is it even a poem?  I would like to hear all of your thoughts — positive or negative.

Thanks for reading.  I appreciate all of you.
