"Anyone Who thinks that Sunshine is Pure Happiness has Obviously Never Danced in the Rain"

I am the girl who only writes in the night
1,019,729.6 possible words...
Yet tonight, my page remains white.
Shh... I don't want to be heard.
They still don't know that I write in the night....
1,019,729.6 different words.
It's the poem that writes itself when it's no longer light.
Shh... I told you before, you heard what I said.
They'd tell me I have to go to bed.
I am the girl who only writes in the night.
I am the girl who gets lost in her head.
1,019,729.6 unique words when the night is dead.
Shh... What if the hear... the scratching of my pen...?
but my poems... write themselves in the early AM.
1,019,729.6 english words...
1,019,729 and I will barley use a third.
Shh... It's almost done...
1,019,729.6 special words I'll never show to the sun.
With sun comes day and with day comes light and-!
... And because I am the girl who only writes in the night.

The author's comments:
Surprisingly enough, I wrote this poem in the middle of the night.
