Poetry Train: A Bed

A Bed

My bed has a head-
board where I hoard
chapstick and Bic
pens to write to friends.
It holds in its folds
a nail file I’ll
use when I choose
to fix, while I’m watching flicks,
my nails.

And if I fail to fall
asleep at all
I can read a book
or take a look
at TV. It’s free.
Or do a puzzle
and maybe nuzzle
if I must. It’s just
a great place
to be. Lucky me.

Internal rhyming is perfect. This is very vivid and I loved all the images it created in my mind.

It sounds like a good place to be. Great imagery.

I love Bic pens. I loved the poem, and nothing is better than a bed on a Monday.

Love the almost tongue twisting rhymes, fix / flicks, phew!

i don't have a headboard, but that hasn't stopped me from accumulating all those wonderful pieces of might need on the windowsill behind the bed.......
