Mental Notes

They come and go
spontaneous and erratic
when I’m half asleep
driving on the freeway
pretending to be engaged
in a lackluster conversation
that point in time
when I’m trapped
between my conscious
and my subconscious
those pristine moments
when I can’t escape
so I can process
and really ignite
leaving me
frustrated and deficient
wrecking my brain
trying to remember
but it’s no use
once again
I have missed out
on what was
probably my best
gone and forgotten
like the others
but they always resurface
next time
I hope I’m ready
to capture or at the very least
revive my thoughts and
permanently engrave them
in my mind and when I’m ready
transfer them to paper.
