Three in the morning thanks the pen – a poem

Chocolate and tea at 3
In the morning
Does not help
Facebook news
Does not help
Maybe the sleep that cannot be
Might
 
But the mind is tight
From yesterday’s struggles
Bureaucracy wins
All the time
Over heart, and mind
The two things it does not have
 
But I do
I do,
A marriage of the two
Too much
Enough! Enough!
Is never enough
To banish the fluff
That becomes the clasp
The grasping hand
Of defeat
 
Why?
That is not the question
But it is
And the answer is
I do not know
It is too early for the morn
And too late
For the mourning
Too early for the past
Too late for the last
 
Let me then return
To my chocolate and high tea
Some comfort
For me, at least
Until the beast
Rides again
When long ago becomes tonight
 
I cannot fight
Just now
Maybe the blanket waves
Will capture me
Tomorrow
Tonight
 
What day is this
When the sun is hidden
Hiding in its driven place
No space
Only the dark
The carrow calls
But that was yesterday
The sober way
Is now
Maybe that is why
Bed beckons
And thanks the pen
 
John Passant 3 July 2018
