3:22 AM is not my FRIEND.
When the fan swirls round and round,
And the click clacking of the KEYS makes me beg-
Mercifully crying for INSPIRATION,
Crying out in ANTICIPATION,
What will my fingers create this time of NIGHT?
MIGHT I ask,
What I am writing?
For I do not know when my brain is sleeping
As it should this time of MORNING
I give my readers reading here fair WARNING
This creation lacks consistent RHYME,
Consistent meter,
Consistent TIME.
A sloppy figure all it’s OWN.
Is this even considered a POEM?
My mind is turning with the FAN,
My heart is racing with my HANDS,
Typing, typing faster, FASTER,
Creating a monstrous grotesque DISASTER.
What is this thing even ABOUT?
I open to speak,
I close my MOUTH.
3:22 AM is not my FIREND,
Tangled mess of words,

The author's comments:
So I'm up at 3:22 AM and I can't sleep so I figure I'll put my restlessness to use and write a poem, then I realize I can't think of a thing to write about so I write my ode to the most horrific time of night (or morning) 3:22 AM when the poems are long and pointless but fun to read.

Thanks for reading and like i say every time comments and feedback are awsome! they make me a better poet! =)

BTW, it is considered a poem.

I'm loving the rhythm in this.
