beware the thoughts that come in the night

they’ll drive you mad in broad daylight

· ѳ ·

everywhere you turn

worn out faces

desperation in their eyes

tears so salty  …bittersweet…

making puddles at their feet

· ѳ ·

be careful! be cautious!

don’t look too closely

into those eyes

lest they pull you in

…never to be seen again

· ѳ ·

beware the thoughts that come in the night

they’ll drive you mad in broad daylight

· ѳ ·

lie upon your bed

in the dark of night

deadly quiet

don’t think…  don’t dream…

don’t risk temptation’s gleam

· ѳ ·

for along that path

no good to be found

…no heart’s desire…

only yearnings never to be cured

merely endured

· ѳ ·

beware the thoughts that come in the night

they’ll drive you mad in broad daylight

  1. Those crazy night-time thoughts can lead to turmoil and confusion.. your poem really gets to grips with the working of the sleepless mind. I liked the way you used a chorus effect here.

  2. A great poem, Dani. Those first two lines say a lot…I’ve experienced that myself.. “Mad World”..another one of my favorite songs…just love it..can so relate.

  3. Love the poem. Truer than I’d like it to be, and lovely!

  4. Sometimes a really bad dream has stayed with me for years! This is all so true. Yes, we have to steer our thoughts to better places. Nicely said Dani!

    • thank you, Bren! ♥ i do my best to stop negative thoughts before they’re fully formed though, of course, i’m not always successful. {smile} thanks for stopping by!

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
