Random idea, random poem

Midnight Chauffeur

May 24, 2018


I don’t know where my dreams take me
That’s up to my Midnight Chauffeur
Everyone has their own
And journeys are usually a blur

I’ve never heard his name, nor seen his face
And he appears at the randomest moments
He whisks me away when I least expect it
It’s so easy to suddenly lose focus

He decides where I end up
But I don’t think he fully knows what he’s doing
Because sometimes I have recurring dreams
And end up where the next dream’s brewing

I don’t blame him if I have nightmares
After all, he’s just doing his job
It’s not his fault if I wake in the middle of the night
Or that when I do my heart throbs

Sometimes he brings me to wonderful places
Where I meet all my family and friends
And we’ll laugh and dance and sing
And I’ll cherish it before it ends

Other times he accidentally drops me off
Or maybe his car breaks down
I don’t really know, but either way
I’ll have fragmented dreams all around

I try and record our trips
But there is no real pattern to our excursions
Sometimes he brings me to the same place
But it’s a different version

So dear Midnight Chauffeur
This poem is for you
I’d like to thank you for doing your job
And I hope your Midnight Chauffeur treats you well too

    v Ikr? This is so well written and original! I loved this so much. But, this is my only tip, the word `randomest' feels a little awkward on the tongue. Other than that, this was really good!
