Off the Vine

Don't text me late at night
When aloneness has won the day;
When poetry swirls through my head
And darkness has muddied reason.
I might say something unexpected—
Fling poetry at you
Like overripe tomatoes
Leaving you bewildered
And covered in seeds.

Nice. I write late at night too. It's the time of day when your mind is full of things. Like a child's toy box :)

Thear have been times
When I have wrote
Typde something
The reve has said:
''Stop writeing poetry -
'' To me! ''
Some times writeing poetry
Can be accdental!
Late at night - early in the morrow!
Or indeed past noon!

I like this one! Great analogy of poetry as a fighting tool; almost a weapon. The pen IS mightier than the sword!

A vine poem, if a bit seedy.
