I wish there is a machine that could possibly
scribble your thoughts automatically.
Like a written record of your each and every idea.
For due to some reasons I cannot fathom,
the greatest thoughts come after the lights are off.
When you are off to bed half dreamy--
that is when the writer in you wakes up.
And for insomniacs like me,
who takes forever just to be in the sleepy state,
it is but a great risk to get up again and jot down my thoughts,
knowing that I will then sacrifice another night's sleep.
For when I shook off the yawny state,
it will again take forever for me to be sleepy once more.
But then this flood of ideas ambush me and then after some internal deliberating,
still and as always, the writer in me wins.
So I get up, turn the lights on and write.
For as often as it happens,
I am always overpowered by the insomniac machine within my reckless brain.
