Attacked At Night

   My thoughts have been invaded, from where I do not know.

    Are they divine or are they mine?

    Are they a gift or have they been hidden away and forgotten?

    They attack me at night, mind you there is no fright, just a longing to know from where

     they come and will they go.

      A simple person am I, happy to just pass by and let others shine.

      Puzzling to me to be awaken by such rhythmic debris.

       I lift my hands to the sky and ask ...Why?

Thanks...

Beautiful.

Thank you one and all....

Wow. Words fall short. Thank you for sharing your gift.

Thank you Kazel, truely I'm no poet, I meant every word. This and a few others woke me from a dead sleep, I had to write them down or I wouldn't have been able to go back to sleep... Very strange. I appreciate your kind words.

I really enjoyed reading this, thank you so much for posting it. I love the rhythm of the poem, it's very enjoyable to read out loud. You should consider taking it to a poetry reading, I'm sure people would enjoy listening. I almost wish I could hear you read it, simply because I've found that usually authors read their own works better then total strangers, lol. :)<br />
Again, a great poem, and thank you very much for commenting on one of my stories as well. :)<br />
