At night time

At night time

A Poem by Annie Gryphon

When you got the letter from Fred
I wished for a cigarette
What was it he said?
Guess that's something between you and Fred.

Sometimes i get confused by name
But i'm really not to blame
It's not my fault
There's just too much salt

In the water of the sea
So that i can hardly see
The world that is real
And i have to deal

With so much i feel
Especially in the middle of the night
When there is only little light
Of the moon and the stars
The neon lamps of the bars

Maybe having a drink too much
And thousands of things to touch
Makes me want to escape
Jumping out of my shape

Diving deep into words
Flying high with the birds
Creating new worlds
Where nothing ever hurts

And i nearly forget
The letter of Fred
Lean back in bed
Lay down my head
Good night!

Ahhh!
So good it feels to finally rest after so much thinking, going about, drinking, and barhopping and such, and so very much more your keen words have spoken to us from the voice of experience, of times that simply try to engage the mind, heart, and soul so deeply, tossing it all about as a leaf in the wind … I love the original and creative way you've closed this, Annie, and tucked it in until next time, tomorrow?

Splendid mono-rhymes and alliteration treat your readers from beginning to end, and never a dull moment in-between — thank you, Dear Poetess, for the entertainment derived from your ultra-skilled pen … no one can write them like you do! ⁓ Richard ; )

Stream of consciousness....we all can relate....so now, do tell us....what WAS in the letter from Fred? Great alliteration and I liked the fact every line in each stanza rhymed. Good work. Lydi**

I am glad and you are welcome Annie.
Maybe it's me, but I found something mischievous about this write! I had thoughts of two lovers (unaware of each other) being written too by the same mistress; and, the letters were posted into the 'wrong' envelopes - your words rang true of someone in a quandary - best pled insanity through alcohol! Great write - makes my imagination wander - oh yes … bless … :-) Poor old Fred - wonder who the other guy's name was ????

I feel something inside as I read these wonderful words, well inspired and there is warmth and beauty coming from each line, wrapped up in the middle of the night, the world we cant see comes real, thanks for these blanket memories

' Diving deep into words - Flying high with the birds - Creating new worlds - Where nothing ever hurts.. '

Both strange and wonderful how a sudden memory, perhaps, births a chain of thought, either serious or smiley. Night seems to have its own garden full of those moments. Maybe the warm, quiet blanket of night lets us be ourselves. No interruptions, no jarring sounds. Just Self and.. whatever.
