8:00 AM – In the Air (Hour 24)

In the Air (8:00 AM – Hour 24)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Breeze sweet with anticipation

Clouds darken as if night

The sharpness of the moment

Foretells of the storm soon coming

A Whisper (7:00 AM – Hour 23)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Hushed words

spilling loud secrets

alert those in close proximity

to ear hustle

6:00 AM – Duplicates (Hour 22)

Duplicates (6:00 AM – Hour 22)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

If I could clone myself I would

I would do it in triplicate

 

One would be resting

One would be writing poetry

One would be working out

The other would be soaking in the tub

 

I just need a referee, cause

Who decides

on who is 

which one?

5:00 AM – Pushing It (Hour 21) – DONE

Pushing it (5:00 AM – Hour 21)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

The child who teeters 

to close to the edge

 

The assignment submitted

with one second ahead

 

Your mother’s 911 message

left on unread

 

The phone 2%

from going dead

 

The lover quickly

leaving your bed

4:00 AM – Turn Off the Light (Hour 20)

Turn Off the Light (4:00 AM – Hour 20)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

When my mind is racing

And there no clarity insight

Just lower the music and

Turn off the light

 

When my body is aching 

And I do not feel right

Just turn off the television and

Turn off the light

 

When exhaustion is unbearable

And I want to pick a fight

Just hang up the phone and

Turn off the light

 

When I keep re-reading the same words

And the pages seem too bright

Just close the books and

Turn off the light

 

When the slightest noise

Cause me to jump in fright

Just muffle all noises and 

Turn off the light

 

When my mind can no longer

Think of words to delight

Just shut down the computer and 

Turn off the light

 

Good Night!

(Well not really, I have 4 more pieces to write!)

3:00 AM – Out Of Gas (Hour 19)

Out of Gas (3:00 AM – Hour 19)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Forgot to check

the night before

needed more fuel

but didn’t stop by the store

 

Riding on fumes

on a wing and prayer

LAWD HAM MERCY

Let’s make it there

 

Pushed it to the limit

knew the risk

had to make it home

for a show not to miss

 

Thought it was worth it

and it probably was

was just too exhausted

to turn the television on.

2:00 AM – Coils (Hour 18)

Coils (2:00 AM – Hour 18)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

My grey and black

4C’s

intoxicate me

spiralling tight and

bouncy

two strands grip at the ends

nice and spicy

well moisturized, they are juicy

when suffering neglect

an interesting tightly packed

sponge

waiting to soak up

the new trendy product

of the month

1:00 AM – Cramped (Hour 17)

Cramped (1:00 AM – Hour 17)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Pinned up 

In a knot

I can’t pull out a thought

I am constrained by

Time

Location and 

Circumstance

HELP

I want to get out!

12:00 AM – The Midnight Hour (Hour 16)

The Midnight Hour (12:00 AM – Hour 16)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Darkness

Quiet

Sounds of rest

This is the time

When I work the best

No one to text me

No phone ringing call

Just me and my computer

Taking care of it all

11:00 PM – The Space (Hour 15)

The Space (11:00 PM – Hour 15)

~ D², @d2poetry

 

Too crowded to

create

not by things,

but attachments

I need the

freedom 

from responsibilities

deadlines

and

expectations

tunnel vision

lined with infinite boundaries

thoughts bouncing like 

happy echos

dissipating untouched

a bottomless pit of 

possibilities

lit by my carefree

spark of inspiration

clinging to 

boundless hope.
