Why I write

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night
Grasping on to the tail of an escaping idea
I make it my pet and stroke it till dawn
It grows by the minute and demands to be fed
When I refuse it goes wild
Clattering around making a mess of my mind
It grows so fast that I cannot contain
It begs to be released and I relent
I give it a shower and brush its mane
Some nips here and there
And when it’s clean and appealing to the eye
I sigh and I let it go. 


  1. You seem to be on a poetry-writing spree now...

    Anyway, this beautifully written one is going to be one of my all-time favourites among your works. Maybe it's because I can easily relate to it! :)

  2. Haha...yes..something has happened and I just can't stop writing it :D
    This was an impulsive one :)
