My Bed

My bed…
the creative zone
of this day dreamer
lazy poet
who lived in her own world
of books and more books
and few dreams
not a morning person
loved sleeping more than
anything else
fragile, fussy about food
shy introvert
never wished to annoy a soul
a bundle of all that
my father didn’t approve
he failed to
discipline me
he thought I was the rebel
without a cause
understand he didn’t
the becoming of a lazy poet
I didn’t choose to be a poet
poetry chose me
it came to me
I didn’t try to be a poet
poetry came to me as a  twin soul.
