Awol thoughts

When thoughts suddenly play hooky

then words are apt to go belly up

uttering incoherent sibilant whispers

they willingly withdraw into wilderness

called by a god, maybe!

you then become inured to vacuity

still you grieve, getting your knickers in a twist

you believed thoughts were at your beck and call

writing was your well-deserved privilege

oh, what a shame!

solitary confinement does not help

nor does seeking inspiration from other’s work

the brain refuses to comply with orders

you risk teetering on the brink of going beserk

you strain yourself, work up a frenzy

however hard you may try to coax

thoughts are in no mood to comply

content to curl up in suspended animation

and you end up feeling like a hoax.

  1. Sounds like maybe your ‘muse was on the blink’ πŸ™‚ I can’t take credit for that–another blogger used the phrase and it totally amused me!! πŸ™‚

      1. You’re always most welcome, dear Punam. Perhaps Muse was on a brief vacation, and will knock on your door tonight!! πŸ™‚ ❀

      2. Lol Thankfully muse is very much here but I am too busy to write! I can hear it knocking but turn it away because it is not right to continue to write but not find time to read others. πŸ™‚β€οΈ


      3. Oh, you needn’t feel that way, truly. There are times when all of us can’t get around to read as many blogs–so no worries. Write when you want to, and read when you can. Much love πŸ™‚ ❀

  2. Honest and sincere feelings of vulnerability here. This could not have been easy to write. Your presence is appreciated, no matter what you write, Punam {{{{{HUGS}}}}
