bob Posted September 25, 2015 Share Posted September 25, 2015 How many writers have awakened from a dream, and declared: “My greatest work just flashed through my mind?” This writer had that experience once, and while dreaming he devised a way to capture his story. This poem is written with four words per line. Captured In My Pen© Eleventh hour softly proclaimed; Endeavoring vainly to write, Contriving, creating a draft, ‘Ere I sleep tonight. Pen slows, then ceases; My tired eyelids close. Head begins to nod... Reluctantly, I must doze. Marvelous words are coursing, Through my apprehensive mind; Conjuring pictures and fantasies Of every imaginable kind. Loves platonic drama unfolds, Words on antiquated white, Intensely powerful, intellectually profound, Overwhelming in its might. Exploring the cover thoroughly, Questing for a name, Front. . . back. . . inside out; Results forever the same. Undeniably it’s my creation. Safeguarded in my head. Beseeching my subconscious mind Demanding to be read. Ultimately. . . a magic pen; A dreamers impractical decision, Would liberate the anecdote, From this fantast’s vision. Mystical forces contained within Pointed nib of gold, Absorbed completely, liquescent words, Adventurous, fascinating, and bold. Awakened. . . clock striking two; Strangely I feel refreshed, Knowing my pen captivated Revelations only I possessed. Commit- words to paper Command- them to flow. Only spirals and dots, And pointless doodles show. What’s with this instrument? Something has gone amiss; Paragraphs I dreamed about, Didn’t look like this. One sheet I've exhausted; Ten more followed suite. Somehow my magic pen, Has deliberately gone mute. Dejected now, I capitulate. Efforts are set aside. My magic pen unrelenting, Keeps them locked inside. Plagiarism is no problem’ Time only determines when, You’ll enjoy this story Captured in my pen.
