STRINGING BEADS

Standard

STRINGING BEADS

Nothing, nothing, nothing will come

It’s driving me batty…I’ve come undone

My inner critic is laughing, it’s true

But really and truly, I’m feeling blue

No verses, no prose, not even a pun

Who ever said that writing is fun?

My mind is full of tripe and nonsense

The words are there, but they make me wince

I string them together by one and twos

Then scratch them out, too scattered to choose

How many days must this go on?

The more I try, the more I’m alone

My muse, I think, has gone on vacation

Leaving me here with no inspiration

Can’t focus on anything…my thoughts on the run

And until I catch them, the race is not done

So, now I continue to sit on the fence

Which leaves me feeling frustrated and tense

Hey, wait…wait just a darn minute

A break in the clouds…I think I’m still in it

I have an idea, and it may be silly

But, no matter the trail be rocky and hilly

I’ll give it a try…see where it leads

Thread words together, like string through the beads

  1. It’s enough to make you scream sometimes…the more I try to force the words/thoughts, the more I go blank. Hopefully days like that don’t stay around too long! Thanks, Nicole, for visiting and your comment!

  2. You are inspiring. So inspiring. I would love to ask a million questions.
    You are so open! That is rare! That is a gift! I am so honored to know you! Truly!
