Wide Awake (a poem)

A Poem by Joshua Donahue

a poem about coming to realization about the fact that you love someone so much that they keep you up at night

Wide Awake (a poem)

 

I look at my clock

It’s 5 am and I’m wide awake

Because of all the things you say

It hits me like a rock

 

I’m sitting on my bed

And the sun’s not up

I think I’m beginning to fall in love

When I saw you in my head

 

Because I had a dream

That you and me

Were meant to be

No matter how weird it may seem

 

I’m so hooked on your words

That I can’t sleep

Being overwhelmed in your verbal heat

But it doesn’t hurt

 

I’m speechless to say

That when I woke up today

I never thought I’d be so wide awake

To you and how much it means that you’re there

Author's Note

Once again: No particular form. Usually I write using song form when I write poetry because, to me, they are songs. And I enjoy writing music. But I hope you like it and you can relate. :)

I`m glad this has no particular form. I don`t understand why people felt the need to add structure and rules to writing. It`s art and should be seen for the way it comes out! this is a beautiful piece though, reminds me of the first time you wake up to a new beau beside you and you feel complete contentment. Great poem

I like this...love realized but maybe not quite obtained. You captured the feeling quite well.

"I never thought I’d be so wide awake
To you and how much it means that you’re there"

So true, so well written!

hey :)
This poem is great and i think it's something everyone can relate to. Poetry shouldn't be forced it should just come as it is.
Don't let some snobby poet come and tell you how to write YOUR poetry. Lovely piece thanks for sharing have a sweet day :D

What a great write. The words flow good and show much emotion and just great meaning of what you're saying. I would also say the title does go good with this as well. A deep inner piece thats beautiful my friend.
