POETRY - Why I Don't Write

Sometimes We Need Silly to Lighten the Mood...

Why don’t I write

Laziness overtakes me
Time and time again
Or I lose my pen
Or I can’t find my book
(but then again
I didn’t really bother to look)
or I think
I’ll remember that
That rhyme is soo phat
But you can bet
That I’ll soon forget
To put that pen to paper
& those words
that were so fresh & new
become a part of an endless stew
of ideas
for my mind to once again sort through
& I get frustrated
because thoughts once easy
become more complicated
and they don’t seem to vibe as
when they were first stated
then I struggle
to recapture that flow
As I remember
To have to go
so...I put down my pen
To only lose it once again
