Writer's Madness by Janice Kimball

oh but to rest my weary head
upon a soft and velvet bed
but sleep doth yet evade me still
though I do wish, and I do will
the cause is clear, though I disdain
to battle with my fervent brain
though some may think me quite insane
but a writer's madness is true pain
the word's like fire, dance and leap
they care not that I need to sleep
they demand to be writ in the now
I wish that they could wait somehow
so up I get from drowsy dreams
my life is never what it seems
I love the words, that deprive me
from sleep at night, and sanity
 though sleep I wish, I would not trade
my lack of sleep, for normalcy's shade
what's "normal"  thus be on declension
I choose lunacy to  be my convention
So shall my maddness then prevail
set forth the course. unfurl the sail
