One in the Morning (Poetry)

“One in the Morning”


One in the morning
Desk lamp still burning
Staring at a black screen
Unsure what to write next
What has never been seen?
Or put into readable text?

Pulling an all nighter
Hoping for something brighter
Imagining a brand new scene
To make minds wonder and think
Throwing everything at this project
Even the damned kitchen sink

One in the morning
How can it still be? 
Just realized the clock is stuck
But doesn’t matter to me
The sun is rising, what luck
I’ll write about the sunrise, see
And maybe something about a duck…
